The rest of the day we’ll celebrate the vital city Jerusalem has become. A visit to Machane Yehuda Market – strolling the alleys of the market, taking in incredible scents — mounds of spices, fruit, and nuts, tasting the halva, ice cream, fruit drinks – all at its peak and fresh as a morning’s drive a trip to the supermarket back home will never seem them again. The rest of the afternoon is yours to enjoy as you wish.

The Bar Mitzvah & Bat Mitzvah service will take place in a special area, shaded and looking out over the great expanse of desert. Your child holds center stage and the setting could not be more appropriate. Following the service, after the photos, after the hugs, take time to wander the site – from the palace of Herod, the early synagogue, and the remains of the Roman siege camps, this is a marvelous chance to reflect on our shared history. Departing Masada, it’s time to playback to the hotel for a refreshing snack and a swim, and then we’re off to Ein Gedi, a stunning oasis drawing a wide variety of wildlife to its refreshing pools and falls.
