The new permanent exhibition of archaeology at the Israel Museum, The Samuel and Saidye Bronfman Archeology Wing, is dedicated to the many civilizations that have left their imprint on the Land. It takes visitors on a rich journey along the path of history, from Prehistoric times to the Ottoman Period. The majority of the artifacts on display come from controlled archaeological excavations, and are on extended loan from the Israel Antiquities Authority. These objects are complemented by artifacts in the Museum's holdings, gifted by generous private collectors and donors. This catalogue provides a small taste of the exhibition's rich and varied treasures.

"The Museum's collection of Judaica and Jewish ethnography is considered the most comprehensive - and most important - in the world. From early illuminated Hebrew manuscripts to unique examples of modern ephemera, from four complete synagogue interiors to wedding dresses and children's toys, it offers a revealing look at ritual and domestic Jewish life in the Western and the Oriental worlds, in communities that no longer exist, and in communities that thrive today, worldwide or transplanted to new homes in Israel." "The Museum also houses the world's most comprehensive collection of Holy Land antiquity, and its permanent display of the archaeology of ancient Israel takes visitors from prehistory through the Middle Ages. These objects - among them a 250,000-year-old carved figure that is considered to be the oldest artwork in the world - are profoundly significant, offering connections with the evolution of human creativity in ancient times and with the origins of Judaism and Christianity. The landmark Shrine of the Book houses the world-famous Dead Sea Scrolls, with their unique importance for the history of religion." "The Museum's Youth Wing connects objects of art and archaeology with the process of making art and of discovering cultural material in the world around us. Its innovative programs and techniques draw over 100,000 participants each year."--BOOK JACKET.

In 2002, an ancient limestone box called the James Ossuary was trumpeted on the world's front pages as the first material evidence of the existence of Jesus Christ. Today it is exhibit number one in a forgery trial involving millions of dollars worth of high-end, Biblical era relics, some of which literally re-wrote Near Eastern history and which could lead to the incarceration of some very wealthy men and embarrass major international institutions, including the British Museum and Sotheby's. Set in Israel, with its 30,000 archaeological digs crammed with biblical-era artifacts, and full of colorful characters—scholars, evangelicals, detectives, and millionaire collectors—Unholy Business tells the incredibly story of what the Israeli authorities have called "the fraud of the century." It takes readers into the murky world of Holy Land relic dealing, from the back alleys of Jerusalem's Old City to New York's Fifth Avenue, and reveals biblical archaeology as it is pulled apart by religious believers on one side and scientists on the other.

Winner of the Jewish Book of the Year Award The first comprehensive yet accessible history of the state of Israel from its inception to present day, from Daniel Gordis, "one of the most respected Israel analysts" (The Forward) living and writing in Jerusalem. Israel is a tiny state, and yet it has captured the world’s attention, aroused its imagination, and lately, been the object of its opprobrium. Why does such a small country speak to so many global concerns? More pressingly: Why does Israel make the decisions it does? And what lies in its future? We cannot answer these questions until we understand Israel’s people and the questions and conflicts, the hopes and desires, that have animated their conversations and actions. Though Israel’s history is rife with conflict, these conflicts do not fully communicate the spirit of Israel and its people: they give short shrift to the dream that gave birth to the state, and to the vision for the Jewish people that was at its core. Guiding us through the milestones of Israeli history, Gordis relays the drama of the Jewish people’s story and the creation of the state. Clear-eyed and erudite, he illustrates how Israel became a cultural, economic and military powerhouse—but also explains where Israel made grave mistakes and traces the long history of Israel’s deepening isolation. With Israel, public intellectual Daniel Gordis offers us a brief but thorough account of the cultural, economic, and political history of this complex nation, from its beginnings to the present. Accessible, levelheaded, and rigorous, Israel sheds light on the Israel’s past so we can understand its future. The result is a vivid portrait of a people, and a nation, reborn.

Jerusalem 1000 1400

Medieval Jerusalem was a vibrant international center, home to multiple cultures, faiths, and languages. Harmonious and dissonant voices from many lands, including Persians, Turks, Greeks, Syrians, Armenians, Georgians, Copts, Ethiopians, Indians, and Europeans, passed in the narrow streets of a city not much larger than midtown Manhattan. Patrons, artists, pilgrims, poets, and scholars from Christian, Jewish, and Islamic traditions focused their attention on the Holy City, endowing and enriching its sacred buildings, creating luxury goods for its residents, and praising its merits. This artistic fertility was particularly in evidence between the eleventh and fourteenth centuries, notwithstanding often devastating circumstances—from the earthquake of 1033 to the fierce battles of the Crusades. So strong a magnet was Jerusalem that it drew out the creative imagination of even those separated from it by great distance, from as far north as Scandinavia to as far east as present-day China. This publication is the first to define these four centuries as a singularly creative moment in a singularly complex city. Through absorbing essays and incisive discussions of nearly 200 works of art, Jerusalem, 1000–1400: Every People Under Heaven explores not only the meaning of the city to its many faiths and its importance as a destination for tourists and pilgrims but also the aesthetic strands that enhanced and enlivened the medieval city that served as the crossroads of the known world.
