Behind the Scenes

When was the last time you visited a 3,000-year-old Jewish home? Did you know a house that old was discovered near the Western Wall Plaza? Join us for a Behind the Scenes tour of the new archeological findings dating back to the First Temple period. This is a rare glimpse into life in ancient Jerusalem. This 90-minute tour will take you down under the Western Wall Plaza, to a new site opened to the public in 2013. The findings from the past 3,000 years of Jerusalem’s history are evidence of Jewish life and rule going back to the First Temple. The Jews of the Land of Israel tended to live in structures made of three covered rooms around an open courtyard. Such a house was uncovered west of the Western Wall Plaza. Its residents got to live just a hundred meters from the Temple. From the quality of the structure and remnants discovered in the house, we can infer that its inhabitants were important people with high status in the kingdom. Archeologists are constructing information about the house’s inhabitants piece by newly-discovered piece. During the days of King Hizkiyahu, taxes in the regional cities were paid by sending oil and wine in large jugs. The Hebrew word “To the King” would be etched into the handle of the jug along with the name of the city sending it. A large number of such handles was found at the site pointing to its administrative significance. On the tour, you will also visit the Eastern Cardo, and a factory for dying materials that dates back to the days of Nachmanides. Join us for a tour of these excavations as part of the Behind the Scenes tour, open to individuals and groups.
