About the Event

What is the most ancient Jewish symbol? If your answer was the Star of David ✡️ - try again!

It’s actually the seven-branched Menorah 🕎, which originally represented something entirely different than it does today. Join this tour to learn the story of this, and other important symbols as they evolved or fell out of use, from the times of the Second Temple until today.

* This tour is independent of the Israel Museum. Admission must be purchased independently. Kids are FREE in the Israel Museum throughout August. For more information, see the extra info in the tickets section on this site, or see the Israel Museum website HERE.

What Was Herzl’s Favorite Emoji? opens a window into different aspects of modern Israeli and Jewish society, and raises important dilemmas and challenges.

Two part tour. Join any part, they are independent of each other, but best appreciated together.

This tour is in Hebrew. Want it in English - sign up and we’ll change it. That’s how it works. Just make sure there aren’t any people signed up for the tour Hebrew beforehand.

Part one begins in the times of the Maccabees where we find the earliest appearance of the Menorah. The tour continues into the Byzantine period (Mishnah and Talmud) when it was ubiquitous, and ends in Jewish Art.

Part two continues this journey and explores how different symbols are found in synagogues and Judaica from around the world. It ends with the art of the Bezalel Academy, and includes provocative discussions and more surprises along the way.
