Virtual: The Archaeology of the Exodus

Date: April 2, 2020
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm Contact: Jodi ZicklinEmail: Jodi.Zicklin@boulderjcc.org

The biblical account of the Exodus in the Sinai desert is quite extraordinary. For almost 200 years, explorers and archaeologists have looked for evidence of the Exodus, but have come up empty-handed. Why? Did the Exodus ever happen? Is anything about it true? How did this story come about? How did Israel actually emerge in Canaan? Professor David Ilan will try to answer these questions, from the perspective of an archaeologist.

Co-sponsored by: Hadassah
