Jerusalem, the new city
Jerusalem is the capital city of Israel, thriving and multi-cultural. Explore the modern history that has shaped the state to be the county that is today.
The Knesset, Israel's parliament, was named after “Haknesset Hagedolah,” the Great Assembly of the Second Temple period Today it stands as a symbol of both Jewish sovereignty and dedication to democracy. In lively, often heated, debates, its 120 elected members reflect the divergence of Israeli public opinion, legislate and oversee the workings of the government.
Israel's legal system is a combination of Jewish, Turkish, and British law adapted and molded to suit modern Israeli realities. Built by the Rothschild Foundation, the Supreme Court building, with its striking design, is a fitting home for the judicial branch of government which oversees Israel's democracy.
Go to Mt. Mount (Har) Herzl, the burial place of Israel's founders, the country's leaders, and military cemetery. Pay tribute to those whose vision helped build Israel and those who gave their lives to keep it safe.
Visit Yad Vashem, Israel’s national Holocaust museum. This presents a profoundly Jewish memorial to the Shoah (Holocaust). From its dramatic structure to its powerful exhibits, such as the labyrinthine Valley of the Communities and the underground
Children’s Memorial, Yad Vashem is an unforgettable place of tribute and remembrance.
Gaze at the luminous colors and rich Jewish symbolism of the exquisite Chagall stained-glass windows in the synagogue of the Hadassah Medical Center in Ein Kerem. The windows illustrate the blessing of Jacob, the patriarchs of the 12 tribes, to his sons.
Into the hills of Jerusalem is the biblical Ein Karem, and whose name means "the spring in the vineyard." Step into another world while you visit this quaint neighborhood.
