The Top Attractions in Jerusalem

At the age of 14, Rabbi Leib Tropper traveled to Israel to study at a yeshiva. Israel remains one of Rabbi Leib Tropper’s favorite places to travel in the world.

Travelers in Israel have access to some of the most religious sites in the world, especially in Jerusalem, a major city for Jews, Christians, and Muslims. Below is a brief overview of the city’s must-visit sites.

The Temple Mount: Jewish historians have linked this location to several important events in Israelite history, including the binding of Isaac and the construction of the first Jebusite fortress.

The Western Wall: Also known as the Kotel or the Wailing Wall, this attraction remains one of the most significant sites for Jews. Located in Old City, the wall is a remnant of the second temple and dates back to the first century B.C.E.

Israel Museum: Open for nearly five decades, this museum houses the Dead Sea Scrolls and hundreds of thousands of other artifacts. The museum also boasts a number of impressive works of art and hundreds of manuscripts.
