  • Haim Be’er’s Jerusalem - Guided by Prof. Haim Be'er

A guided walk through the heart of Jerusalem with Jerusalemite author and a 2022 Hebrew University Honorary Doctorate recipient, Prof. Haim Be'er. His writings and personal stories will offer a glimpse into the Jerusalem of his youth and the inspiration for his stories about the city.  The walk will begin at the King David Hotel, proceed to the old Maaleh School near Independence Park, where Be'er went to school, continue to the Sansour building at the beginning of Ben Yehudah St. This tour will conclude at the King David Hotel after an hour and a half. 

  • "Jerusalem of In between" – Following the poems of Yehuda Amichai in Mishkenot Sha'ananim - Guided by Dr. Oded Lowenhein, Dept. of International Relations, and Dr. Daphna Sharef-Davidovich, Rothberg International School

This tour is inspired by the poems of Yehuda Amichai who lived most of his life in Jerusalem.  We will begin at the King David Hotel, walk through Mishkenot Shaananim, while stopping at some of the landmarks connected to Amichai’s poetry, and conclude at Teddy Park just opposite the base of the Old City walls. During the tour we will use Amichai's poems to learn about his thoughts, feelings and desires about his special city, Jerusalem. In addition, we will explore the sometimes-blurred borders between shared and contested public space in the city and beyond. This tour will conclude at the King David Hotel after an hour and a half. 

  • The YMCA and the King David Hotel

Two of the most significant buildings that were added to the Jerusalem landscape during the years of the British Mandate were the King David Hotel and the YMCA.  They both still stand today and offer a unique look at Jerusalem during the heyday of the Mandate and a glimpse into the vision that guided the British government during its rule over mandatory Palestine.  This walk will begin atop the roof of the King David Hotel and continue with a visit to the YMCA building across the street. The walk will conclude back at the King David Hotel after an hour.
