FOR 2000 years there has been a symbolic connection between the site where Jerusalem’s Old City citadel stands today and King David. It began with the writings of Yosef ben-Matityahu (Josephus Flavius), who described Herod’s palace and the impressive three-tower fortress built next to the palace as the Citadel of David because of its strength and magnificence. Today the citadel, with its towers and turrets and archaeological ruins spanning close to the 3000-year-old story of Jerusalem as we know it, is home to the Tower of David Museum of the History of Jerusalem and this month has opened a new night experience that tells the story of Jerusalem’s most famous king.

“There is no historical person more connected to Jerusalem than the biblical figure of King David. The Tower of David has brought his timeless story to life using both technology and creativity to journey back in time to the days of the Bible, to travel through great works of art inspired by this poet and warrior, and to celebrate him in a concert of music, color and light,” says museum director Eilat Lieber.
