    ON ITS WAY TO MOUNT

    Mount of Olives

    The Mount of Olives is a holy site to Jews, Christians and Moslems. Christians believe the Mount of Olives is part of the route from Jerusalem to Bethany and the place where Jesus stood when he wept over Jerusalem. For Jews, it’s the location of an ancient Jewish cemetery that dates back thousands of years and the spot where various Temple rituals took place. In the Muslim tradition, a bridge with seven arches will one day be suspended from the Mount of Olives to the Dome of the Rock over which the resurrected will cross –the righteous will go to heaven and sinners will fall off the bridge into hell.

    We will take a bus to the Damascus gate and walk through the Old City on our way to explore this special area.

    Mount of Olives Observation Point

    We will start our tour at the Mount of Olives Observation Point which is located on the Western slope of the mountain. From this spot you’ll be able to see the valleys of Josaphat and Kidron and a breathtaking view of the Old City of Jerusalem, including the City of David.

    Here we will discuss the importance of the Mount of Olives to adherents of the world’s three major Western religions and explore its place in the history of the Land of Israel.

    MONTH OF OLIVES VIEW

    Jewish Cemetery

    As we start walking we will make our way to the Jewish Cemetery, This is the oldest Jewish cemetery in the world – 3000 years old — and marks the spot where between 70,000 up to 300,000 tombs from various periods are located. During the era of the Temples, important Jews were generally buried in burial caves  but many others were buried on the Mt. of Olives.

    Gardens of Gethsemane

    The Gardens of Gethsemane was named in the New Testament as the place where Jesus and his disciples prayed the night before he was crucified.

    The garden sits between the Temple Mount and the Mount of Olives and is on a ridge that leads, according to Christian tradition, to Bethany. There are eight ancient olives trees in the gardens and the olives are still harvested and oil is pressed from them.

    We will also see the nearby Grotto of Gethsmane where Jesus’s disciples slept while he prayed — the Church of all Nations was built over the rock on which, according to the New Testament, Jesus prayed. Our tour will also include a visit to the Tomb of Mary, Jesus’s mother.

    Dominus Flevit Church

    Another important Christian site that’s located on the Mt. of Olives is the Dominus Flevit Church. This Church was built on the spot where, according to the New Testament, Jesus wept over his vision of Jerusalem’s fate.  The scripture states that this occurred on Palm Sunday as he entered Jerusalem triumphally to the cheers of the crowds who had come out to greet him. 

    Via Dolorosa

    Our walk back will cross through some of the Stations of the Cross of the Via Dolorosa.
