Today we explored the Old City of Jerusalem. First, we visited a school in Jerusalem, called Resheet. We met with 5th and 6th graders, they made a presentation, in English, about their huge greenhouse. Together we did some activities that had to do with their garden, and we got to converse with them about ourselves. We had a delicious lunch of falafel or meat. Then we were off the the Old City. We rushed into the the Western Wall for a tour of the underground tunnels. There we learned about the architecture of the Temple Mount and the historical timeline. We got to travel along the part of the the wall that was built all around, so it wasn't visible from the outside. While traveling through these tunnels we learned about the placement of the Beit HaMikdash, and we got to go to the place that was closest the the Holy of Holies. After the conclusion of our tour, we got to the walk around the Western Wall for a bit, and connect with G-D.
