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.
