Join CMEP and MEJDI Tours for an insider’s look at Jerusalem, leading you through the history and current politics of the Holy City. We'll travel virtually through the City of David, Silwan, and Sheikh Jarrah. This tour will take you through the neighborhood of Silwan, starting with the relevant background and sharing the local narratives. This is an in-depth opportunity to view, learn, and discuss with your live guide. CMEP staff will be present to talk about current events and advocacy opportunities related to the Holy Land.
This tour is designed in cooperation with Ir Amim, an NGO working for an equitable and stable Jerusalem with an agreed political future.
This tour includes viewing 360 pictures, videos, and maps with a live guide who can answer your questions. You are sure to leave with a better understanding of current situations in the Holy City.
