Tours of Jerusalem
|Ir Amim invites you to join its study tours of Jerusalem. Our tours travel through Israeli and Palestinian neighborhoods in East Jerusalem, and discuss the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in the city. Our tours focus on the relationship between the Israeli authorities and the Palestinian population, Israeli policy in Jerusalem and its social and political implications, and the Separation Barrier and its effects on the city. These tours are offered regularly and open to the public! They are free of charge.|
Ir Amim also offers tours to private groups, including decision makers, diplomats, journalists, students, volunteer youth organizations, high school students, special army units, high ranking government officials, school principals, city planners and more.
Since 2004 about 28,000 people have participated in Ir Amim's study tours of Jerusalem.
"I really want to express my sincere gratitude for the opportunity to participate on the Ir Amim tour today. It was an incredible experience. I have been on a number of tours and programming initiatives related to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict (ranging from extreme right-wing to extreme left-wing) and I consider this to have been my best experience."
"Our time with Ir Amim gave us an immense amount of insight and thought-provoking material through which to view Jerusalem and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in a whole new light and we are truly grateful to [our tour guide] for his time, patience and for the engaging dialogue we had with him."
"Your precious work makes me a little bit more optimistic about the future of this land."
"I just wanted to thank your organization for putting on such an interesting tour of East Jerusalem today. Your guide was excellent and very balanced in his approach to the complicated issues surrounding Jerusalem."
"I'd like to thank you for the informative and eye opening study tour of East Jerusalem .... I learned a lot about the city I'm living in and especially East Jerusalem which, like most Jewish residents of Jerusalem, I barely know even though its just a few minutes from the neighborhoods that I'm familiar with."
"It was an eye opening experience, especially since I lived in Jerusalem for one year, within walking distance of East Jerusalem and was oblivious of its existence. The commentary was intelligent and highly informative."
