| Did you know Siebenberg House in Jerusalem’s Old City sits atop revealed treasures of Jewish history,most notably a palatial mansion belonging to the Hasmoneans of Maccabean fame. 18 years of digging revealed a base layer of emptied burial caeeves from the era of King David and Solomon some 3,000 years ago.
Above that are the remains of the Hasmonean mansion. For further information go to:israel21c.org/headlines/the-magnificent-maccabee-mansion-found-under-a-home
