Service Description

“In every generation a person must regard themselves as though they personally had gone out of Egypt” Mishna, Pesachim 10:5 It is incumbent upon us to re-experience the Exodus in every generation, and adapt its concepts to our current reality. Ancient Egypt is an inseparable part of Jewish identity. Passover stories, customs, songs, movies have eternalized the Exodus throughout the world. Ancient Egypt does not need any introductions. It is inspirational in every way: From the Pyramids and the Sphinx to the mummies and mythologies, from King Tut and Ramses the Great to the Nile River and its amazing wildlife. Here we are, in the 21st century, so far removed from mummies and mythology; personal freedom is taken for granted, slavery is understood as evil, while the Exodus itself is always in question. Go down to Egypt through the museum and experience this foreign and ancient land, and discover its relevance to how we live today. This tour explores many facets of Ancient Egyptian culture and archaeology. It examines and explores different aspects of this mysterious culture and engages in discussions about its relevance to the Exodus story and the modern world. This is a 2 hour tour in the Israel Museum or the Bible Lands Museum. It is adaptable to many museums worldwide, as well as in-person virtual tours or via Zoom. Each museum and presentation has a different focus, and can be customized to meet your needs.
