Jerusalem Events July 

July Jerusalem events reflect that the Israeli summer is now  reaching its peak. It's all about enjoying the outdoors and sports or, conversely, seeking refuge from the heat in a nice, air conditioned setting. This being Jerusalem, there is, of course, a bit of whimsy about it all ...

This year's July Jerusalem events are shaping up to form one of the most action-packed months of the year.  We've got music, we've got movies, we've got sports, exhibits and festivals ... lots to do!  So grab a sun and a bottle of water and check out some of these great offerings:

 Jerusalem Scavenger Hunts

Israel Scaventure

Our top rated group activity in Jerusalem is usually accessibly only if you've got a group of four or more people ready to participate.  In July, however, Israel ScaVentures usually runs some "open" hunts so individuals as well can enjoy this exciting, educational trip through history.

July at the Tower of David

Tower of David, Jerusalem

One the must-see sites at the entrance of the Old City, the Tower of David is more than a good museum and historical building.  It's also become a cultural center of sorts, often hosting musical events and dramatic performances.

The Citadel's famous sound and light show gets more breathtaking every year. 

For reservations for the musical, sound and light show, or for more information about events at the Tower of David, call: *2884

The museum is open Sun – Thurs 9:00 to 17:00; Fri 9:00 to 14:00;  Sat. 9:00 to 17:00
