Israel Torah Tours
The Mikdash Immersive Experience
Ignite a lasting connection to the בית המקדש in the heart and mind.
Get To The Heart of It All
This unique tour is designed to deepen your connection with the beis hamikdash and to help make it really relevant to your daily life! This is accomplished by reconnecting our personal avodah to the center of Jewish avodah,
the בית המקדש.
BRING IT TO LIFE
What did it feel like to visit the Beis Hamikdash on ALiyah l'regel?
What did the כלים of the בית המקדש actually look like?
Go into actual homes from the times of the Beis Hamikdash!
How can we connect with the בית המקדש today?
How can we make it a part of our daily life?
The Mikdash Immersive is a unique tour experience that goes way beyond the typical כותל tunnel tour.
This is a full day experience visiting various sites around the old city that bring the בית המקדש to life in an engaging, inspiring, and lasting way.
The immersive begins with a spectacular look out over the area.
From this unique vantage point, we start by zooming out and getting a view of the broader area before we zoom in.
From here you will get an overview of our schedule as you glance towards the upcoming sites from a bird’s-eye view.
After opening up the topic of the בית המקדש, you visit Machon HaMikdash where the areas of the beis hamikdash, the keilim and the avodah comes to life!
Here you will get a real feel for what otherwise is a very challenging area of Torah to visualize in one’s mind.
This site will allow you to walk through teh Beis Hamikdash in your mind as it really starts to come to life!
Here you actually go down underground into a house from the eve of the destruction of the second beis hamikdash!
What would you expect to find in a house from then?
What did life look like?
What really brought about the destruction?
all of this comes to life quite vividly as we go underground and back in time!
The Burnt house
What did it feel like coming to the beis hamikdash on aliyah l'regel during the Chagim? how does that compare to us visiting today?
And perhaps more importantly,
how can we combine the two and enhance our experience today?
Here we walk the same stones that our ancestors walked as they prepared to go up to the beis hamikdash and we learn from their experience as we follow in their footsteps!
After learning and experiencing so much of the בית המקדש, we head to the kotel tunnels to get as close as possible to the קודש הקדשים.
Here you will be able to grasp the magnificent beauty and inspired-craftsmanship that went into building the בית המקדש.
Finally, we will summarize the day and discuss ways we can connect to the בית המקדש in our daily lives.
All of this and much more is included in order to really actualize the experience and help make it a meaningful part of your life!
We go above and beyond to try to make this a really incredible and inspiring experience, and those who have joined me in the past on these tours have said how strongly it impacted their experience on tisha b'av and beyond.
If you are here in Israel this time of year, you won't want to miss this opportunity!
