Rikki Zalut Zalut Har-Tuv, a City of David archaeologist recently discovered an intact, complete oil lamp dating back to the Second Temple period – from the 1st or 2nd century BCE, between the Hasmonean and Roman periods.
The lamp was found on the Old City of Jerusalem’s Pilgrimage Road, which goes from the Shiloah Pool to the area adjacent to the Western Wall.
Just in time to celebrate!
Happy Chanukah! May you have a joyous and healthy holiday with more wondrous times to come!
It has been an honor to consider you all my friends and family. Here’s hoping that next year when we celebrate, that we can do it together without the threat of COVID-19 or any other health challenges that come our way.
