TEMPLE BETH SHOLOM

The rediscovery of the biblical world has included some of the most exciting archaeological discoveries made in the 20th century. The finding of a series of scrolls (that were hidden in caves along the northwest corner of the Dead Sea) dated to the 3rd century BCE-1st century CE perhaps tops the list of discoveries regarding their impact on both Judaism and Christianity.

Although it has been well over half a century since the initial acquisition of the scrolls in the winter of 1946-1947, the intrigue, impact, and excitement of their discovery have not abated.

An aura of mystery and intrigue stills surrounds them, as they tell of a unique way of life in the Judean Desert; a spirituality of piety and purity under the harshest conditions; a dream of leading Israel into a new age of holiness on earth…and of course, a treasure hunt of immense proportion (in that day). Join us as we examine four key areas: discovery of the Dead Sea scrolls; the archaeology of the scrolls community; the secular scrolls and life of the community; and the biblical scrolls and the nature of the Bible.
Silver Member: $109; Gold Member: $98.
