Southern Wall Excavations - Jewish life and the celebration of Sukkot in Jerusalem in the time of the Temple with Assaf Boker
Join the International March of the Living for a guided tour with Assaf Boker in our continuing webinar series on September 23, 2021 at 2:00PM ET. Local times listed on website.

Sukkot is one of the three pilgrimage Jewish holidays where hundreds of thousands of our ancestors have ascended to Jerusalem to celebrate the holiday and to feel part of the Jewish collective. How many of these traditions associated with the pilgrimage continue to be part of our Jewish rituals today? More than what you may expect! Join us in an eye opening virtual tour to the Southern Wall Excavations aka The Davidson Center. In our tour we will walk through the traditional pilgrimage rituals through visiting different corners of the Davidson Center and learn together how some of our Jewish rituals were shaped in this very place!

The tour will be live and will allow time for Q&A from the audience!
