On our tour of the Old City of Jerusalem, MAMES students will learn about the history of the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim populations in the city. The tour will focus on the period of Ottoman rule in Jerusalem from 1517 to 1917, and will also touch upon earlier and later periods. In addition to sites within the city walls, such as the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Temple Mount and the Jewish Quarter, students will also visit sites outside the walls, such as Gesthemane and the Mount of Olives.
This year, the trip will took place on November 24, 2013.
