RWB dancers and staff got an early morning start on their third full day in Israel. Just after 8:00 am, the group boarded a tour bus bound for Jerusalem for a day of sightseeing.
On their way into the city of Jerusalem, the group passed a bridge that reminded them of Winnipeg's Provencher Bridge.
Activities in Jerusalem started with a walk-through of the Yad Vashem Museum where the group was reminded of the millions of men, women and children who suffered and were killed during the Holocaust. It was a very emotional experience for many. After lunch, the group began a four-hour guided walking tour of the Old City.

Entering through a gate and travelling down the twisting paths of the narrow cavernous streets in the Old City, the group eventually made its way to the iconic Western Wall (or Wailing Wall).

To conclude the day, the RWB group met up with the members of the Winnipeg Jewish Federation for a hearty dinner before getting back on the tour bus to return to the hotel in Tel Aviv.
