Jerusalem. You Must See to Believe.

Jerusalem. You Must See to Believe.

From the moment the visitor rounds the curve in the highway, and the eternal Jerusalem comes into view, he or she understands the city’s beauty and timelessness, inspiration to poets and prophets for centuries.

Spectacular ancient and historic sites provide unique backdrops for creative events in the 21st century. A feast in an underground cave that is 2,000 years old or a gala in the biblical Ben Hinnom Park under the Old City Walls, from a spectacular sunset reception on the balcony of the Israel Museum to a cocktail party in the Tower of David, your event is guaranteed to be remarkable and memorable.

Jerusalem is home to the two campuses of the Hebrew University and hosts many science and biomedical companies. It is also a leading innovation hub. The city also offers unique resources for scientific conferences and symposia, a major incentive for science and medical associations to hold their conferences in Israel’s capital.

Half of all medical research, as well as nearly half of all biotech research, and one-third of academic research overall in Israel is conducted in Jerusalem at the Hebrew University and its affiliate Hadassah Medical Center.

There are culinary tours of the colorful Mahane Yehuda open market marking its centennial year, museums and art galleries to be visited, and even bike tours within the city and beyond, as Time Magazine noted in its recent article showcasing Jerusalem as a cycling-friendly city and choosing Jerusalem as one of the WORLD'S GREATEST PLACES in 2023.

The city abounds with live concerts, festivals and cultural events all year round. One of the most unique music halls is the historic Sultan's Pool, the Solomon’s Pool amphitheater of 6,000 seats, below the walls of the Old City. It hosts scores of open-air concerts featuring international and local performances throughout the year.

There are many cultural centers and venues that ensure that something is going on almost every night, regardless of the weather. For example, Mahane Yehuda, the fresh produce market by day, becomes a vibrant bistro and bar scene by night. The Jerusalem Theater, Hansen House, and the Islamic Art Museum are all a short walk from one another. 

The city’s center has restaurants catering to all tastes and budgets, from ethnic street food in a pita to elegant dinners in rooftop restaurants where the fantastic fare competes with the incomparable view. 

And as Jerusalem is a city of the three monotheistic religions, it is a crossroads of faith and ritual. Magnificent churches, synagogues, mosques, clergy, pilgrims, and parishioners reflect the mosaic weave of multiculturalism for which Jerusalem is famous.
