A special events series celebrating The Times of Israel’s first decade

The Times of Israel was founded ten years ago with a mission of providing fast, fair and free independent reporting on the latest developments in Israel, the Middle East, and the Jewish world. Today, ToI is trusted as the largest, most credible and most influential English news source in Israel.

In recognition of this milestone anniversary, we will be celebrating ToI’s accomplishments and looking ahead to an even more exciting future with an original series of programming in 2022 under the banner of ToI@10.

Ancient Jerusalem Revealed: Myth-busting the Holy City’s Destructions

Archaeologists Prof. Jodi Magness and Dr. Joe Uziel — in conversation with ToI’s Amanda Borschel-Dan — discuss how archaeology unveils hidden clues into what actually happened during the destructions of the First and Second Temples.

An evening dedicated to proof of the Babylonian and Roman campaigns — and also how it sometimes contradicts the texts that described them.

The live event takes place before Tisha B’Av, a fast day that commemorates the destruction of the First Temple — as noted in the biblical Books of Ezra and Nehemiah — and is also later identified as the day of the end of the Roman conquest of Jerusalem and razing of the Second Temple.


Who By Fire: Leonard Cohen and the Yom Kippur War

Matti Friedman — in conversation with ToI’s David Horovitz — discusses his new book on the singer-priest’s extraordinary tour for IDF troops in 1973

An evening dedicated to Leonard Cohen’s little-known concert tour to the front lines of the Yom Kippur War, accompanied by a live band playing classic Leonard Cohen tunes.

Working from rare source material — including a never-before-seen unfinished Cohen manuscript — author Friedman describes how the poet and singer traveled from his home on the Greek island of Hydra to the chaos and bloodshed of the Sinai desert when Egypt attacked Israel on the Jewish high holiday of Yom Kippur in October 1973.

Those who survived never forgot the experience and the war transformed Cohen.
