Join a leading Israeli tour guide as he escorts you to Mount Zion and its famous sites without leaving your home.
During the previous two weeks B’nai B’rith International and its World Center in Jerusalem have enabled members, supporters and B’nai B’rith senior housing communities to experience the wonders of Israel live thanks to a new virtual touring program. B’nai B’rith invites you to join us for the third and final installment of this program.
The virtual tour will take place Wednesday, March 25, at 10 a.m. ET and will put you on the ground as you explore all the historic landmark Mount Zion has to offer, including King David's tomb, the grave of Oskar Schindler, a panoramic view of Hinnom Valley, the Chamber of the Holocaust and the Zion Gate.
The B’nai B’rith World Center in Jerusalem has been broadcasting tours for two weeks from Israel’s capital using breakthrough live streaming technology, allowing viewers thousands of miles away to experience the epic story and inspiring sites of Jerusalem.
In the first tour residents at B’nai B’rith senior housing facilities, along with B’nai B’rith members and supporters around the world enjoyed an up-close and personal glimpse of the Old City of Jerusalem. History could be found at every turn, whether it was the Western Wall, the various markets around the city or even quiet alleyways.
Last week’s installment took viewers to Mount Herzl to visit its memorials, cemeteries, the National Garden and museums, as well as a trip to the Bible Lands Museum to explore the ancient cultures of the region.
The program will give viewers an unedited, live view of sites that people from all over the world flock to see. This provides a unique opportunity for those who have not yet visited Israel.
The streaming technology will also allow viewers to text questions to the hosts while the show is in progress for more in-depth explanations and a better understanding of the country.
This is a unique experience that is open to anyone who would like to participate.
