Israel Unlocked: Secrets of the Western Wall [TUESDAY]

Dear Times of Israel Community member,

Please join us this Tuesday, August 24, for a special installment of our Israel Unlocked virtual tour series, exclusive to the TOI Community.

This week, we will tour one of the most visited sites in Israel and the region, Temple Mount and the Western & Southern Walls.

When the Temple stood, three pilgrimage festivals brought Jews from all over to visit Temple Mount. Nowadays, the Western Wall has become a similar point of pilgrimage. But even people who have visited it many times miss so many details of what they are looking at. Join expert guide Joel Haber for a tour that explores the Western (and Southern) Walls of the Temple Mount, going in depth to uncover surprises sitting right in front of your eyes. This virtual tour will help you gain a deeper connection to this important holy site, and will give you much to look for on your next in-person visit!
