“Where Did You Come from and Where Did You Go?” Jewish History Mysteries – Online
May 12 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Tuesdays, March 24-May 19, 2:00pm-3:00pm
Join Beth Broadway for a dive into Jewish history mysteries. We know the story of Chanukah and how the Maccabees saved the Temple from the hands of the Greeks and restored freedom to the Jews until the Romans took it away again. But have you ever wondered how the Greeks and Romans started ruling in Israel in the first place? What did they have against our Temple? Why was Herod’s Temple really our 3rd Temple? And what about those Maccabees? Who were they really? Where did they come from, and where did they go? And how about the Essenes and the Dead Sea Scrolls? Where did they come from, and how did they disappear? And how do all these mysteries relate to what is happening in Israel in modern times? If any of these questions intrigue you, join us for a rapid historical survey of the primary sources that explain it all! Contact Melani Baker for the Zoom meeting invitation. This class is free of charge.
