About the Event


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. The tour's main focus is the exhivition "The Feast" in the Israel Museum, which closes January 20. So come and enjoy this tour while you can!

You probably have questions about getting to the museum, where to meet, prices and other questions. 

Since the beginning of the war, the Israel Museum has changed its hours, and has temporarily closed the Shrine of the Book. This means that groups now enter at the regular desk. But I'm still paying a discounted rate on your admission for you, and that is included in the ticket. Museum members - if you want to coordinate with me before coming and pay separately, so you do not pay admission, please contact me in advance! Otherwise I have to pay admission to the museum.

A few details about the tickets: More information in the document above.  

You are eligible for 10% off your entire order with 5 or more participants per order. To get the coupon code, contact me before you place your order. Then use the coupon at checkout.   

We are registered as a group with a special discounted rate through the museum, and that admission is included in your ticket, so you only pay once.  Normally groups meet at the entrance to the Model of Jerusalem, but due to the circumstances we will be meeting at the main entrance. 


This tour is approximately 2 hours in the Israel Museum's Archaeology Wing and Wexler Hall for special exhibitions, on the main exhibition floor (flight above the main entrance).


  • A Royal Invitation (ticket)

    Discounted admission to the museum is INCLUDED in this ticket. There are several ticket options: Find the tickets that best fit your status.
