Highlights of the Old City of Jerusalem

Tatzpit Rehavam Ze’evi

A lookout opposite the Seven Arches Hotel on the crest of the Mount of Olives is named Tatzpit Rehavam or Mitzpe Rehavam in memory of the assassinated Israeli government minister Rehavam Ze’evi. It is believed that this area is the approximate location where the red heifer (parah adumah) was sacrificed during the period of the Temple. The lookout is just above the ancient necropolis (cemetery) on the Mount of Olives. This is probably the best lookout in Jerusalem to see the highlights of the Old City.
