OPTION 1: Jerusalem in the Footsteps of S.Y. Agnon

 

Guided walk through the Rehavia neighborhood, exploring the places and people that built up Rehavia and laid the foundations for the Hebrew University, with the help of S.Y. Agnon’s poetry, and the fictional Hebrew University Professor, Manfred Herbst and other texts.

 

OPTION 2: The Hansen House:  From Leper Residence to a Cutting Edge Creative Hub

 

Visit the Hansen House, once the site of Jerusalem’s hospital for leprosy patients and now one of the most creative spaces in Jerusalem. This special program hosted by the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design will be followed by a tour of the house and meetings with representatives of some of the other residents of the House, including the Mamuta Arts Space and the Pico Makers Program.

 

OPTION 3: Mount Zion – The Hill of Three Religions:  An Archaeological – Ecumenical Experience

 

Journey through the Hinom Valley to Mount Zion, for a guided walk including the Room of the Last Supper, and King David’s Tomb, concluding with a visit to Dormition Abbey and a dialogue between a Benedictine theologian and one of the Hebrew University professors from the department of Comparative Religion on the use of traditional spirituality in popular writing and thought. The group will walk from the King David Hotel into the Hinom Valley to Mount Zion – about a 25 minute walk down and uphill. The walking time between sites on Mount Zion is quite short and flat.
