Today Group 6 learned about the First Temple period, and then took a walk through the Jaffa Gate and Old City. They visited the City of David and went through Hezekayah’s Tunnel, a water aqueduct that brought water to the city during the time of King Hezekayah (700 BCE). The USYers had a wonderful time splashing in the water. They then went to the Independence Park were they ate lunch, played ice- breaker games and had an activity made by their staff. The group had some time to rest before dinner. After dinner they went out to the opening of the Jerusalem movie festival and watched a movie at the open concert theater overlooking the walls of the Old city.
