Stamp Honors Cyrus Declaration Granting Jews Right to Rebuild Temple in Jerusalem

In the year 586 BCE, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylonia conquered the city of Jerusalem from the hands of the Jewish People, destroyed the Holy Jewish Temple and sent many of the inhabitants of Judah (Israel) into exile. The Babylonian Exile ended when the empire was conquered by Cyrus II of Persia and Media, who made a public declaration granting the Jews the right to return to Judah and rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem.

The Israel Postal Service has issued a new stamp bearing an image of the famed clay cylinder which bears an inscription by King Cyrus of Persia declaring he built a Temple for the Jews.
