Yesterday, we ascended the Temple Mount for a view of the dome of the Rock. We continued to the Western Wall (or the Wailing Wall), the last remnant of King Solomon’s Temple. It was Bar Mitzvah day at the Wailing Wall and we saw several young boys celebrate this sacred event.

We continued our journey through the famous Tunnels from the Hasmoni era and out to the Via Dolorosa and the Arab Market–the Shulk–with its hundreds of stores selling many types of artifacts. We concluded the day with a visit to the Holocaust Museum.

Today we are on our own to explore and shop before a farewell supper and the long flight home. While we love being here, we look forward to being with our family and friends.
