Fun day in the Jerusalem/Beit Shemesh Area

  

 Ammunition Hill- This was one of the most important battle sites in the 1967 six day war. Capturing this hill allowed the Jewish people to liberate Jerusalem. See a unique sound and light show. Experience what it was like to be a soldier. The children and adults will love crawling through the real army trenches of the Jordanian army and taking pictures with a real tank from the war.
 

Temple Mount Sifting project- In 1999, the ancient treasures of the Temple Mount were loaded into trucks and dumped in the Kidron Valley by the Arabs (the same valley which Tanach tells us Hashem will judge the nations who oppressed the Jewish People). Sift through the rubble and if we are lucky, we may find treasure.
 

Kever Shimon HaTzadik for Mincha- The burial place of the last member of the Anshei Knesset Hagedolah (Men of the Great Assembly).
 

Tel Azekah- See the place where David HaMelech and Goliath had their fateful encounter. Crawl  underground through the secret 


Bar Kochva tunnels where the Jewish people fought a Guerrilla war for three years against the Romans. This is the same Bar Kochba whom Rabbi Akiva thought had the potential to be Moshiach.


Other sites we can do that day include:


Stalactite cave- We will rock through a unique and breath- taking cave.  


The Bat Caves (with flashlights)-A nice, family friend hike to the natural caves. We will then: Hike up to the natural stone slide near the bat caves. Warning: the kids will not want to leave!


  

Biblical Museum of Natural History-Learning about the animals of Tanach (the Bible). Lots of touching and feeling opportunities.
