About the tour:

Chanukah is the first time Jewish survival was threatened by a culture, not a nation or an army. The Hasmonean revolt against the Seleucid Syrian Greeks had its roots in a bitter history of Jew against Jew. 

Hellenistic vs. traditional Judaism were the story of the day, and we can definitely relate to this dilemma today in the Western world.  What can be learned from the cultural clash between Athens and Jerusalem? Surprisingly, it is what the two have in common that makes one a threat to the other.  

This tour explores the common roots of Athens and Jerusalem, and discovers profound similarities and differences between the two cultures. Both use Olive Oil as a symbol of wisdom; both value wisdom and philosophy; both compete for excellence - of different kinds. And therein lies the subtle, but profound difference. 

 This tour is in HEBREW, and is approximately 2 hours long. We meet in the lobby of the Bible Lands Museum, Jerusalem
