Historic Jerusalem

Guided Tour for Children Aged 10-11 on Jerusalem's Historical Development

Jerusalem is one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world. Using geographical maps, the children discover the city’s changes and growth. They learn that Jerusalem was portrayed as the center of world and today is divided into East and West. The tour also describes the Jewish Temple as an ancient sacred site and the fundamental consequences of its destruction in 70 CE. We follow the traces of the menorah. Why is the seven-armed candelabra depicted on the Roman Arch of Titus?
