As we speak, Justin Timberlake is performing at Tel Aviv’s Yarkon Park to a packed house full of eager Israeli fans.

But before Tel Aviv, the popstar/actor made a stop in Jerusalem to visit the Western Wall.

Accompanied by his wife Jessica Biel, and his parents, Randall Timberlake and Lynn Harless, the Timberlake family arrived from Turkey at 3AM on Tuesday, and went straight to Jerusalem, managing to avoid much of the Israeli paparazzi.

Timberlake snapped a photo of himself at the wall (see above) and Instagrammed it, with the caption: “The Holy Land… What an experience. I will never forget this day. #Israel”

The photo has since gone viral.

Following their trip to the Wall, the Timberlakes arrived in Herzliya, where they are staying at the glamorous Ritz-Carlton, spending most of the day away from the press and relaxing by the pool of their penthouse suite.

As previously reported, the singer made a list of demands before arriving in Israel, which includes, hummus, cases of Coca-Cola Zero and Dr. Pepper, Jamaican beer, a variety of chocolate and strawberry Twizzlers, and tons of alcohol.

Hopefully he’ll also be able to try that melon an Israeli farmer just named after him, too.

Timberlake is reportedly playing a mix of 28 songs during tonight’s Tel Aviv performance, including covers of Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson.

After the show, the Timberlakes will go back to their hotel until they fly out tomorrow for Rabat, Moroco. The singer is performing on Friday night at the Festival Mawazine.

If you didn’t get a chance to see Justin in conference and need your fix of hot boy band performers, don’t worry; the Backstreet Boys are playing July 29th.
