Service Description

The Bible takes us through aeons of Jewish history, from Abraham until the Second Temple Period. But these are worlds long vanished into the mists of time. Or are they? Today, more and more archaeological finds are bringing to light an ancient world. But do these finds prove or disprove the Bible? Do they help us to grow the context of the stories and people of our holy text and understand them better – or do they challenge us with new ideas that seem to contradict what is written on the page? Join the Academy and Rabbi Doron Chitiz on a virtual and intellectual excursion as we dig down into the very earth of Israel and discover a new-old world. Session Details: 1. Introduction to Bible and Archaeology – the archaeological ages of the Bible 2. The Ages of the World – Breishit / Genesis 3. Proof of Exodus? – Shmot / Exodus 4. The Bronze Age: The books of Joshua and Shoftim 5. Shmuel – The Iron Age and the beginning of the monarchy In memory of Yochanan Hillel ben Mordechai z''l
