• Travel to Beit Choron where we’ll see the ancient pass that was the site of one of the most spectacular Maccabee victories, as well as a battle site from the overlooking hills.
• Visit the area of Modi’in – The humble village where Matisyahu and his sons first stood up to the Syrian Greeks setting off the war that led to the liberation of the Temple.
