Around 50 new French olim went on a guided tour of the city with representatives from the Absorption Department and guides from the Society for the Protection of Nature.

The tour was to help connect the olim to the city, its nature sites and cultural heritage. The tour started at the Iriyah, where they received information about the city, the unique building and future projects. From there they went to a number of nature and heritage sites around the city including the old Chashmonai shul and Givaat Habrushim. The tour ended on Givaat Hatitorah with a view of the city from the top of the hill. The tour was in Hebrew with French translation by Daniel Cohen who volunteered to translate for the rest of the olim. This was the first such tour for French speaking olim in the city.
