Nehemiah went to Judah in 445 BC, the 20th year of Persian king Artaxerxes (Neh 1:1, 2:1).

Nehemiah had been a cupbearer to the Persian king (Neh 1:1). Nehemiah rebuilt the walls of Jerusalem (part of a confrontation with the Samaritans), battled social injustice in Jerusalem (Neh 5) and built upon Ezra's reforms.
