Celebrate Jerusalem Day by perusing the city via google maps

Description from myjewishlearning.com:

“Navigating along Street View (below), you can visit the Ben-Yehuda Street mall, pass by the open market on Agripas Street, and cruise up Yafo Street to the entrance to the Old City.

Unfortunately Street View can’t enter every part of Jerusalem’s Old City, where streets are are too narrow for Google’s camera cars. There’s a consolation prize, however: Google uses publicly-uploaded photos to create composite scenes such as the Western Wall and the Dome of the Rock, allowing you to see breathtaking panoramas with no need to renew your passport or even get up from your computer.”
