Visit Mount Zion to see the Tomb of King David, the Room of the Last Supper, and Dormition Abbey.

We may be able to arrange transportation from Jerusalem to the airport at around 14:00 (after lunch).

This should be helpful to anyone that has scheduled a departure flight on Saturday (June 26th) after 06:00 PM. If this is the case for you, we suggest that you do not book transportation to the airport at this point. Check the news section of the website and wait for updates during the conference before you make the final arrangements for transport to the airport.
