Israel Museum Model of Second Temple Jerusalem

Model of Second Temple Jerusalem at the Israel Museum

Today’s Israel picture of the day is from the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. If you haven’t been to the Israel Museum you are really missing out! It has a wealth of artifacts from all periods in Israel, starting from prehistoric times to the present.

One of the highlights is the giant scale model of Jerusalem in the Second Temple period. It was created by Michael Avi-Yonah of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. It depicts Jerusalem the way it looked on the last day before the Temple wad destroyed in 70CE.

Come with me on a tour of the Israel Museum and you will see the Second Temple model and much more!
