The Most Important Archaeological Finds in Israel, Ever!

Sunday, February 21, 11:30 am – 12:30 pm MST

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.
