Avraham's Journey: From the Ancient Near East to the Middle East (English)

Abraham’s journey, mentioned every day in the morning services, takes him through the centers of civilization at the time, leads him to Egypt – and to a promise of an Exodus whose importance cannot be overstated.

About the Event

This tour is independant of the museum. Museum admission is still required, in addition to the RSVP. The Israel Museum is not responsible for any aspect of this tour, and will not recognize your registration here towards the admission. Thank you!

  • Why do Jews mention Abraham’s journey in everyday liturgy (pesukei d’zimra / zemirot)?
  • How is the Exodus an outgrowth of Abraham’s life’s work? As a matter of fact, what exactly was his life’s work
  • Why is his journey essential for the understanding of today’s geopolitics, as in the “Abraham Accords?” 

 In this tour we explore these and other related questions by way of a journey through history and archaeology. This tour explores the common roots of Islam and Judaism's Monotheism, and the centrality of iconoclasm to both religions. It considers the importance of Abraham's physical journey from Ur, through Harran and Canaan to Egypt, and his spiritual/philosophical journey, to Jewish identity. This tour is approximately 2 hours long, in the Israel Museum. We meet in the lobby, after you purchased your tickets. When you sign up, I will have your details. There is no need to print out anything.
