Passover Retold with Dr. Naomi SS Jacobs

What was the name of the Egyptian who found Moses? Where is there evidence that Israelites had dogs? How was a Satan-like figure part of the Exodus story? Learn all this and more in a special Passover class in which we read from the Book of Jubilees (more than 2,000 years old) in which a special Angel tells Moses the story of his life and what happened in Egypt.

7:00 pm – 9:00 pm at Congregation Bonai Shalom 1527 Cherryvale Rd. Boulder, CO 80303. April 5th and 12th. Suggested donation $10-$15.
