About the Event
Join me on this new and exclusive summer tour, a feast of the imagination.
The Ancient Near Eastern feast gets special attention in a new exhibition called The Feast. Using this exhibition, we will explore the connections between royal banquets and feasts in history, in Tanach, and connect them to stories of destruction and redemption that connect to the First and Second Temple periods and Israeli politics.
This tour is brand new, full of surprises and cool exhibitions, and will be running frequently until the exhibition closes at the end of December 2023.
You probably have questions about getting to the museum, where to meet, prices and other questions. I prepared for you a short essential document which breaks down the important things to know before, on the way to the tour and during the tour. Please make sure to read it. I have guided hundreds of tours and I assure you; your future self will look back and say “thank you for reading this!” and if not, “I wish I’d known”.
