The Kaiser comes to Jerusalem

A fabulous new exhibit at the Tower of David Museum in Jerusalem!

Kaiser Wilhelm II, Emperor of Germany and King of Prussia, visited the Holy Land in 1898. Feverishly elaborate preparations were undertaken prior to his arrival that would forever change the face of Jerusalem’s Jaffa Gate. And the visit itself – thrilling, dramatic, and covered by every reputable journalistic rag in the world – was a wonder to behold.

Superbly interactive, technologically advanced, and extraordinarily visual, the new exhibit is an experience both educational and fun! My favorite part: sharp, quick, “modern” newspaper reports with moving pictures. On- and also  historic photos of  Jerusalem in wonderful detail.

Added bonus: You can take your picture with the Kaiser in his tent. Bring Theodor Herzl along if you like, and set a crown upon your head. Then send the photo to Facebook or email it to your family and friends.

The exhibition is open during regular opening hours:

Sunday – Thursday 10:00 – 16:00
Saturday 10:00 – 14:00
The Museum is closed on Fridays.

Dear Aviva and Shmuel,
We had an uneventful trip home, and are finally pretty much off jet lag. We thank you so much for your planning, communicating, and all around help, Aviva. Shmuel, we thank you for showing us so much of your wonderful country and sharing so much information. I feel so much respect for the people who started and built up the country of Israel. It makes a difference seeing it and having a guide like Shmuel to give us the history, interesting and important facts, and guiding us to the places that matter.
