Weekend Shabbat (Friday evening to Saturday evening) in the Holy City is a unique experience that cannot be paralleled to a weekend anywhere else in the nation. Make sure to shop before Friday’s early afternoon shop closing time. Our recommendations for weekend activities in Jerusalem include the following:

  • Go check out the Bezalel Street Fair on Fridays. You won’t be dissatisfied with the unique gifts and goods manufactured by more than 120 artisans!
  • Take a stroll on the weekend to see how the streets that were bustling in the morning get quiet as Shabbat approaches in the late afternoon. As businesses close and people break for Shabbat, the city will become calm and feel almost mystical. Insider’s tip: Yemin Moshe, shown above, is one of the most lovely districts to tour on foot on Shabbat.
  • After a calm and relaxing weekend, Machane Yehuda comes to life on Saturday night and transforms into a nightlife explosion!


One of the things you must do in Jerusalem is explore the Old City. In fact, no Jerusalem bucket list is complete without seeing the most important landmarks in Christianity and Judaism. On this Jerusalem Walking Tour, you may see the Church of the Sepulchre, the Via Dolorosa, and the Western Wall as well as the contemporary city outside the walls.

Or why not plan a day of seeing different landmarks? On our Jerusalem, Dead Sea, and Bethlehem Tour, combine a morning in the Old City with an afternoon spent visiting the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem and the Dead Sea.

While you walking through the Old City, purchase a pair of handmade leather sandals, or a great ceramic bowl. These along with spices, candies, trinkets, and sweets are all worth purchasing from the Old City market. After taking a guided tour (because we don’t want you to get too lost), to have a real Jerusalem experience, return to the Old City on your own to truly get lost in its winding alleys.
