Everyone knows about Hanukkah: lights, dreidels, and doughnuts, right? Well - Let's dive into the real story...

What you'll learn

On this tour, we will learn and explore the story of the Maccabees. Who are they? Where are they from? Why were they fighting the Greeks and Where and what happened with their dynasty ultimately? What a dramatic moment in history!
We will visit different sites virtually, see the landscape and the archeological evidence that were found over the years. We will visit Modi'in, Maresha, Mitzpah (Known as the Tomb of Prophet Samuel), the City of David in Jerusalem, and much more! We will unfold the story of the Maccabees in a fascinating way that will give us a new perspective and understanding of Hanukkah. 

Using 3D models, videos, pictures, and photospheres we will unfold the story of the Maccabees. If you are interested in learning about this fascinating chapter in Jewish History - that's the tour you want to book! 

This class is perfect for

families, groups of friends, teams at work, religious congregations (churches, synagogues), senior homes, and more

Meet Itamar Ben David,

Your teacher

I am a licensed guide in Israel and hopefully one day I will get to meet you guys in person. Until then - let's explore Israel virtually! Besides guiding I used to sing in a band for many years, and I will be happy to share some Hebrew songs with you during the session. I have deep knowledge of the history, archeology, faiths, traditions, culture, and politics of the region, a BA in Middle East History and Islam, and years of studying the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faiths.
