Eye Opening Tour of Jerusalem's Atarot Neighborhood
The Israel Land Fund invites you to take part in a tour of a part of Jerusalem most aren't familiar with, Atarot.
Date: Friday, January 29th, 2016
Meeting point: Entrance gate to the Atarot Industrial area
Among the sites we will visit are one of the most impressive stalactite caves in Israel. (We won't be entering the cave. For that you'd need diving equipment.)
We'll visit the international airport in Jerusalem. Didn't know it existed? Many don't.
We'll also pay our respects at the burial site of 18 fighters who died in the defense of the Atarot yishuv. Their bones were moved to this spot in 1953 when the Jordanians destroyed their graves to widen the airport runway.
Did you know that the current government forbids entry of Jews into 8 neighborhoods of Jerusalem? Prepare to be enlightened.
Due to government security requirements all participants must register with full name and ID/passport number by 12:00 Thursday January 28th, 2016.
