​The Hasmonean​'s Secret
​An Historical Hanukkah Mystery at the Tower of David

* This event is over. if you want to know more about upcoming events, click here

Meet Elazar Hermoni.  Elazar works as a guard at the entrance to the Tower of David.  He is a great guy, friendly and… cursed!  Yes, yes, he doesn’t want to believe it either, but a curse hangs over him and his entire family.  Once a year at Hanukkah, at the Tower of David, he has a chance to meet his ancestors and try to solve the great mystery of the Hermoni family.

You are invited to help Elazar break his family’s curse in a new, enjoyable theatrical tour at the Tower of David. Amusing, interesting encounters with personalities who have ​just disappeared during various points in history:  a British lady fighting alongside the underground, a Crusader knight with a surprising secret, and Elazar HaChorani, the brother of Judah Maccabee.  In each one of these meetings, you will be presented with a challenge and uncover a clue connected to the larger mystery.  Once you collect all the clues, you can help remove the curse!
