Nature & Nation: Sefirat HaOmer Tour in the Israel Museum

The 50 days from Pesach to Shavuot are a celebration, ancient and modern alike. But they are also dreadful times. The uncertainty around the success of the crops in the field was a farmer’s main concern. What is the underlying idea connecting these seemingly unrelated themes?

About the Event

Bar Yochai and Bar Kokhba - two leaders who hid in a cave, and shaped the path of the nation.

Geared towards adults and teens. Families with kids under 10-12 should look out for tours listed as "family tours" that are shorter and more age-appropriate

This two-hour tour in the Israel Museum explores the holiday-and-festivity-rich time of year - which sees many expressions of redemption and independence - from the Exodus to the battles of Modern Israel: Memorial Day, Independence Day and Yom Yerushalayim, and finally - Bikkurim day. It is the time of the failure of the Bar Kokhba revolt, but also of Rabbi Akiva’s students. The story of this time seems curiously involved with King David as well, as we read the story of Ruth which takes place in the fields of barley, a king who comes from Bethlehem - “House of Bread”, in a story about famine.

Join me in the Israel Museum as we explore these fascinating connections between agriculture, history, national development and the Jewish holidays.
