In the Footsteps of the Maccabees

The Maccabees fought for the freedom and holiness of Jerusalem over two thousand years ago. This tour will follow in their footsteps, with an eye to those who would fight the same fight and follow in their footsteps until today. We will begin where the revolt broke out, in the site (only recently discovered) of the Maccabees in ancient Modiin. We will follow in their footsteps into the Jerusalem hills, to their long time base near Beit El, and to the site of some of their most fatefult battles in the Gush Etzion area, before finishing with a breathtaking view of the Temple Mount from the Haas Promenade.
