Talk: What the Dead Sea Scrolls Reveal about Judaism

What the Dead Sea Scrolls Reveal about Judaism with Dr. Naomi Jacobs, June 13th 

Everything we thought we knew about the Bible, Midrash, ancient Jewish religious practices and Jewish literature changed radically with the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Come and learn about the major implications of more than 800 documents and be prepared for some big surprises!

Dr. Naomi Susan Schwartz Jacobs is a scholar and teacher of ancient Jewish writings and history, especially those writings that were lost from Jewish consciousness and have only now been read by Jews again. Jacobs most recently taught at Washington University in Saint Louis and as an adult Jewish educator in Saint Louis and Boulder; she also teaches Hebrew at Bonai Shalom’s Religious School. Dr. Jacobs’ insights into the Dead Sea Scrolls come in part from her studies with an original member of the Dead Sea Scroll deciphering team.

 Cost is $18 per adult, $15 per child, and not exceeding $54 per family. All First Fridays begin with services at 6 p.m. and followed with dinner at 7 p.m. Wine is BYOB (Kosher only). Please label your wine if you do not wish to share. At the UU, 5001 Pennsylvania Ave., Boulder. Please RSVP at office@bonaishalom.org or 303-442-6605
