This video features a breathtaking aerial view of Masada, showcasing the remains of the ancient past. Two-thousand years later, the site remains as relevant as ever to the Jewish people.

Roman King Herod built Masada in 31 BCE. It stands at an impressive 1300 feet over the Judean Desert, a true display of architectural might. Despite the tragedies that befell this location, it serves as a symbol of strength and freedom to the Jewish people.

From filmmaker Jeffrey Worthington: “It was an honor to be allowed to film over such a historic place as Masada! Flying solo operating the drone and the camera was a challenge in the wind but it paid off. I’m grateful to the Israeli Nation Park Service for the opportunity to film over some of Israel’s most precious archaeological treasures!”
