Health tourism in Jerusalem

Jerusalem. Its very name conjures up the stories of the past and the promise of the future.

Jerusalem. Where the ancient and the modern stand by in a centuries-old setting.

Jerusalem. Holy to three great religions.

Within a short taxi ride from either Hadassah campus, you can explore this historic, yet living city. Hadassah's International Patient Center can arrange touring opportunities, restaurant reservations, tickets for cultural events and trips to nearby sites for patients and their families.

Spend just one day in Jerusalem and you will realize that the legend is the reality. Here, the symbolic and the prosaic come together in a unique tapestry of sights, smells and sounds. The sky is colored with a golden glow that refracts off the stone buildings. Time and space come together and sometimes seem to stand still.

Jerusalem offers fine restaurants, a multiplicity of museums, history and culture, spirituality and shopping in open-air markets or elegant boutiques, parks and gardens, antiquities and modern art.
