The Second Temple was completed in 349 BCE. Under the leadership of Ezra and Nehemiah, the community in Judea became vibrant and secure. The Second Temple era spanned 420 years, ending with the Romans' destruction of the Holy Temple in 70 CE. 1 For much of this period, Judea was under foreign domination. First the Jews were ruled by the Persians, and then, after
