Jerusalem in Babylon Maranatha Tours Travel Guide


In honor of the 25th Anniversary of the BLMJ and the 50th Anniversary of the unification of Jerusalem, the exhibition Jerusalem in Babylon will open to the public on May 17, 2017.  Showcasing the phenomenal Al Yahudu tablets, the exhibition presents the evidence of the first exiles and the backdrop to the stories behind the destruction of Jerusalem and the Babylonian captivity and exile.

Based on the success of "By the Rivers of Babylon", which revealed the rare Al-Yahudu tablets for the first time, the core material of this exhibition, has been reinstalled in this new exhibition "Jerusalem in Babylon". "Jerusalem in Babylon" tells the story of the destruction of the First Temple and Jerusalem and the exile of the Judeans to Babylon. The exhibition concludes with the echo of Psalm 137, “By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat and wept when we remembered Zion”, touching on the quest for return that has echoed in the hearts and prayers of the Jewish people for millennia.

The Al-Yahudu tablets reveal the names of dozens of Judean exiles, and their offspring, and bear a stunning testimony to their lives in Babylonia over a period of some one hundred years.

This exhibition was made possible due to the generosity of: Cindy and David Sofer, William L Gross, Green Family collection, Dr. Haim Grossman, Aliza and Shlomo Mussayeff, and the Israel Antiquities  Authority, The David Berg Foundation, George Blumenthal, Eugene and Emily Grant, Beth Sanders, Mary and Saul Sanders, Naomi and Peter Neustadter, The Elie and Batya Borowski Foundation, and the international friends of the BLMJ in America, Great Britain, and Germany, the Lands of the Bible Archaeology Foundation, and the Israel Ministry of Culture and Sport, The Israel Ministry of Education and the Municipality of Jerusalem.
