Description: Jewish Journeys in Jerusalem provides a unique religious Jewish understanding of what there is to see and do in Jerusalem. Other tour books about Jerusalem focus on the general tourist, giving secular descriptions of Jewish sites. This book details many of the religious services available to the observant Jewish visitor and provides a religious orientation. It is a must read for those visiting Jerusalem, preparing congregants to travel to the city, or just for personal background knowledge.

A general tour book does not deliver the appropriate information and needs of the Jewish-minded tourist.
Jerusalem is a city with a rich Jewish history.
If a visit is prepared properly, the tourist can have a very positive and rewarding Jewish experience.
Jewish Journeys in Jerusalem includes interesting background about popular Jewish sites and fascinating details about lesser known Jewish places.
How was the Talmudic era grave of Nicanor found?
