A tour of Jerusalem’s Old City provides a window into the historical sites where the Jewish people battled their enemies throughout the ages.

While the name of the Old City’s Hurva Synagogue literally means “destruction,” a reference to Arab armies blowing up this house of worship multiple times, the magnificent structure has clearly risen from the ashes and is now one of the most beautiful synagogues in the country.

The Hurva is one of many sites in Jerusalem’s Old City where visitors can witness first-hand the aftermath of the Jewish People’s triumph over its adversaries.

From the Cardo, where Roman invaders once set up shop, to the Western Wall, where the Arab armies prevented Jews from praying, the Jewish People have reclaimed their holy capital of Jerusalem, despite centuries of occupation by other nations.
