Yad Vashem

Yad Vashem, Israel’s largest Holocaust memorial is set on the slopes of the Mount of Remembrance on the edge of Jerusalem. The new Yad Vashem Museum opened in 2005 and its nine chilling galleries of interactive historical displays present the Holocaust using a range of multimedia including photographs, films, documents, letters, works of art, and personal items found in the camps and ghettos. Yad Vashem is a place which is not fun to visit, but is definitely somewhere that we recommend all visitors to Israel experience.

The Zoo’s scenic location in the Judean hills with its varied animal exhibits, draws people from all threads of Jerusalem’s vibrant social fabric – Jewish, Christian and Muslim; secular and religious: young and old; and tourists and locals.

Market

Machane Yehuda Market

Jerusalem is in many ways a modern Western city, but those visitors wanting a raw whiff of true Middle Eastern life have only to walk to MachaneYehuda, better known to Jerusalemites as the shuk (market). Lining its two main aisles, which run between Agrippas and Jaffa street, and the complex warren of smaller aisles between them, are dozens of stands, stalls, shops and small restaurants, offering a dizzying array of goods ranging from cleaning supplies to still-wriggling fish. The main attraction is, of course, the cornucopia of food, especially authentic Middle Eastern delicacies.
