A stone-paved path leads up to the top of the Tel Jaffa, where we find a gate-like sculpture by the artist Dan Kafri called a ‘Statue of Faith’ in the Abrasha Park.

We start our day at the Mount of Olives, overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem.

We offer the following two options for those who want:
