Ir Amim leads study tours of Jerusalem

Ir Amim leads study tours of Jerusalem Ir Amim leads study tours of Jerusalem to introduce participants to the social, economic and political issues impacting life in the city for its multiple religious, cultural and national groups as well as Jerusalem’s role in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.The tour route runs through East Jerusalem neighborhoods and utilizes key observation points to provide context for understanding how developing facts on the ground impact the future of a secure, democratic Israeli state. Participants learn about the formation of the city’s borders, the impacts of building and construction and other policies influencing both daily life in the city and its political future: socio-economic disparities between east and west Jerusalem; security, political and humanitarian consequences of the Separation Barrier; and the geo-political ramifications of settlement building, road construction, national parks and touristic settlement.
