Will the Sun Rise Tomorrow?
Guided tour in the Old City with Night Spectacular as an additional option!
Explore the idea of light in ancient myths, or pure light and the expulsion of darkness and the comparison of the holiday of Chanukah with other holidays of light and darkness in other cultures. The primal fear that the long night will last forever created rituals, light festivals and prayers that promise the return of the sun!
During Chanukah week, you can tour the alleys of Jerusalem's Old City and learn about the myths of ancient cultures ant emphasize light, fire, sun and rebirth during this time of the year while gazing at the menorahs in the homes of the Old City and exploring the holiness of lights in different cultures.
The tour will begin at the Tower of David and pass through the streets, houses, courtyards, towers and sacred buildings of the Old City that glow in the special night light of Jerusalem. It will conclude with an (optional) viewing of the Night Spectacular at the tower of David, a sound and light production which itself is a celebration of light and color that illuminates the night sky and the walls of Jerusalem's ancient citadel.
