About the Event

What is the topic? How much does it cost? And what should we expect?

Great questions! I am offering four different tours, please take a look at the list below. It includes links to the main information page on each tour.

Ticket price:*

  • $55 adults
  • $50 seniors
  • $45 students

*includes the admission which is required on self-guided tours, even for NYC residents and Met members.

10% DISCOUNT for your second tour or for referring a friend who signed up.

Family of +5 members and group discounts are available.

Tours are limited to 30 participants, and we will have to split into groups of 15. This means we will have a combination of scavenger-hunt and rotations, which is exciting. This is something I have been doing in the Israel Museum, when we had similar limitations.

Tour Topics

I am offering four different tours, in this order. More tours may be made available, and are certainly available for private booking. You can check out the full menu HERE.

I will adjust the individual tour name for each event once I complete setting up the schedule.

The first tour is called “A Culture Clash” which focuses on Chanukah. 

You can read more about it HERE.

The second tour is called “Avraham’s Journey” which focuses on the origins of the Jewish people and the connection to the Abraham accords in the Middle East, as well as some core concepts in Jewish identity.

You can read more about it HERE.

The third tour is called “A Winter’s Tale” which deals with the final holidays in the Jewish calendar: Chanukah and Purim, form a philosophical perspective. It focuses on the ancient Persian and Greek empires. There is a little overlap with Chanukah, but it’s an entirely different tour.

You can read more about it HERE.

The fourth tour is called “The Age of Empires”. This is the classic, very first tour I ever did at the Met. It’s about the end of the First Temple Period, and the great empires of the Ancient Near East: Assyria and Babylon.

You can read more about it HERE.
