Hallelujah –Performance at the City of David – Now Lighting Up the Night Again
Hallelujah, the beloved nighttime show that offers visitors a fascinating nighttime experience in a light show projected directly onto the ruins of the City of David, has been renewed with fascinating content and pyrotechnics using effects of fire and water for a breathtaking experience!

The show presents the story of the rebirth of Jerusalem – in the actual place where the history happened – depicting how Nehemiah, against all odds, managed to enlist the largest empire in the world to rebuild the destroyed city of Jerusalem.

On Hanukkah days about 20 minutes before the show, there will be a musical candle lighting.
