Have you ever wondered exactly how Father Abraham and his entourage got from Haran in Mesopotamia to the far away Promised Land? Did they ride on camels? Or would they have traveled in style – perhaps in a comfortable carriage?
You can find the answer on a visit to Jerusalem’s unique Jerusalem Bible Lands Museum, where you are taken on a fascinating voyage back in time to the people, countries and cultures of the Bible. You’ll learn how ancient customs and traditions influenced our forefathers, and provided the backdrop to the Jewish religion, the Jewish spirit and the Jewish homeland.
