Explore Jerusalem's surroundings by going to Jaffa Old City (in Jaffa), Tel Aviv (Neve Tzedek, Tayelet, &more) and Safari Park (in Ramat Gan). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center, delve into the distant past at Western Wall, get to know the fascinating history of Old City of Jerusalem, and admire the striking features of Eglise du Saint-Sepulcre.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Jerusalem trip simple and quick.

Newark, USA to Jerusalem is an approximately 14.5-hour combination of flight and car. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Newark to Jerusalem due to the time zone difference. While traveling from Newark, expect much warmer days and a bit warmer nights in Jerusalem, ranging from highs of 77°F to lows of 58°F.
