"In the Footsteps of Menachem Begin" Tour - Jerusalem

As part of the activities sponsored by the Begin Center marking the 15th anniversary of his death, the Center invited people to come in the footsteps of Menachem Begin in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

In Jerusalem, some 60 persons took advantage and saw his first apartment on Alfasi Street in Rechavia, Deir Yassin, the old Knesset building, Zion Square, the Museum of Underground Prisoners and the King David Hotel.

Here are some photographs of one of the Jerusalem tours, led by Yisrael Medad:
