The Hebrews, The Time Passengers: A Journey into Spirit and Land in the path of Abraham
Once again, we are fortunate to have a stimulating program from Soul Train in Great Falls, MT. Dr. Dror Eydar will be presenting a lecture, power point presentation, and musical performance including Jewish soul music and Israeli songs. The program is entitled
The Hebrews: The Time Passengers
A Journey into Spirit and Land in the path
of Abraham, the first Hebrew
A new and fascinating archaeological find has recently been discovered in the Jordan Valley, east of Israel, an ancient site which the Hebrew tribes built around the beginning of the 12th century BCE. The site, its unique shape and its function, are deeply connected to the old ideas of the Jewish People as shaped throughout history since the time of the Patriarchs. Thus, this discovery sheds light on the past of the Jewish nation right up to the present day.
To refresh your memory concerning the birth of the Jewish nation, and to enhance your enjoyment and understanding of this presentation, Dr. Eydar recommends reading Genesis, chapters 12-22.
Please join us Wednesday, May 25 at 7 pm at the Great Falls Public Library. The event is free, with donations accepted to the Great Falls Hebrew Association.
