Ir David: Where It All Began

Talmidim explored the foundations of Jewish statehood and sovereignty with a special tiyul to Ir David, the City of David. With Tanach in hand we studied the begginings of Jewish life in Yerushalayim, and discussed the role of a Jewish government, army and Homeland. After touring the site and seeing the brand new excavations, we enjoyed an underground adventure, hiking through Chizkiyahu's water tunnels. As the sun set and Yom Haatzmaut began, we ascended Armon Hanetziv to daven Mincha overlooking Yerushalayim from the Prommenade; a meaningful way to celebrate!
