The City of David’s Nighttime Presentation tells the story of our return to rebuild ancient Jerusalem. A thrilling, outdoor cinematic experience projected onto the ancient ruins in the actual site where this story unfolded. Under the stars of Jerusalem’s night sky, cutting-edge video mapping technology, the first of its kind in Israel, reveals a story 2,500 years in the making.
More than 2,500 years ago, Jerusalem was destroyed and the Babylonian Exile began.
Seventy years later and against all odds, Nehemiah the son of Hachaliah, with the support of Persia, then the world’s greatest empire, embarks on a dangerous journey to rebuild ancient Jerusalem.

Using advanced projection mapping technology, the City of David presents the riveting story

  of our epic return to Jerusalem
