Uncover the Truth

Remembering Zion

After the Roman conquest, Jews survived as a people while in exile, but without a national home. They were scattered, vulnerable and frequently persecuted. But they never gave up hope of one day having the opportunity to return to their homeland. Religion was the medium for preserving Jewish ties to their homeland. Jews prayed several times a day for the rebuilding of the temple, celebrated agricultural feasts and called for rain according to the seasons of ancient Israel.
