TODAY: Israel Unlocked tour of Jewish Babylon & The Exiles of Jerusalem

Dear Times of Israel Community member,

Please join us today, Thursday, July 15, for a special installment of our Israel Unlocked virtual tour series, exclusive to the ToI Community.

This week, ahead of Tisha B’Av, the annual Jewish day of mourning for the destruction of the two Jerusalem temples, we’ll follow the historical exiles of Jerusalem through a fascinating virtual tour of Jewish Babylon.

Click HERE to join the virtual tour TODAY at 12 pm EDTOur expert guide Josh Hartuv will lead us on this experiential tour of the Babylonian destruction of Jerusalem, then trek with the Jewish exiles through modern day Lebanon, Syria, Turkey, and Iraq until arriving in the city of Babylon itself. See how the Israelites/Jews survived and even thrived in these diaspora communities, which were, for over a millennium, the center of the Jewish world.
