Virtual Tour of the Four Kingdoms

Event

Through the magic of technology Magen Avot was able to visit museums around the world in the virtual ‘Four Kingdoms’ tour. Lead by Nachliel Selavan, an Israeli educator, the community discovered the ancient empires of Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome. Each dominated the historical timeline during the time of the Temples in Jerusalem. The tour explored these kingdoms through different museums as well as using sources from the Tanach, Talmud and Midrash.

Evaluation from Rabbi Kenigsberg:

‘We were looking for a programme to educate and simultaneously something unique to attract interest and hold the attention of the attendees. To our delight the tour was easy to follow, was filled with information, and was interesting. It could easily have been for a longer duration to accommodate the fascinating information, and easy to view artefacts that were on display. The speaker integrated the visual and commentary seamlessly.’

Participant Feedback:

  •  ‘It was surprisingly engaging! Brilliant and informative.’
  •  ‘The tour was excellent, dynamic and well presented.’
