About the Event

The Kingdoms of Israel and Judah meet with the superpowers of Mesopotamia - and their fate and history was changed forever. 

These superpowers changed the game. Regional kingdoms and alliances were no match for the rise of the first Empires, and Assyria marks the opening of the Age of Empires in the world. The deportation of the Ten Tribes and the destruction of Samaria, left Judea all alone, and the consequent destruction of Judea and the Temple by Babylon are what gave us the name "Jews". The geopolitical decisions of the kings of Israel and Judae changed the map, for better or for worse. 

This tour is a journey to the disrtant past, and we will meet the Empires of Assyria and Babylon like you never knew them.
