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.
