Archaeology has played an important role in the creation of Israeli and Jewish identity.
In this talk, Dr. David Ilan – one of the Boulder JCC’s most popular speakers – will present ten of the most significant archaeological finds from Israel, from Prehistory through late Antiquity. The discussion will also explain why each of these is important and relevant for us in the modern world.
