Passover Workshop

Sunday, Apr 14th 10:30a to 12:00pIt is easy to spend the majority of our time preparing for Passover by shopping for the right foods, cleaning and koshering the house, and preparing the meals for the Passover sedarim. But Passover is about more than cleaning and cooking! Join the B’nai Israel clergy on two Sunday mornings in April to delve deeper into the meaning of Passover, the goals and requirements of the seder, and how to make the festival a true celebration of redemption and freedom.

After 1177 BCE: The Survival of Civilizations with Eric Cline

Sunday, May 19th 7:30p to 9:00pIn the years after 1177 B.C.E., many of the Late Bronze Age civilizations of the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean lay in ruins, undone by invasion, revolt, natural disasters, famine, and the demise of international trade. An interconnected world that had boasted major empires and societies, relative peace, robust commerce, and monumental architecture was lost. After 1177 B.C.E. will trace the compelling story of what happened during the next four centuries across the Aegean and Eastern Mediterranean world. It is a story of resilience, transformation, and success, as well as failures, in an age of chaos and configuration. Cosponsored by the Biblical Archaeology Forum, the Biblical Archaeology Society of Virginia.
