Gary Gilbert and Tammi Schneider, TBI congregants and esteemed professors at the Claremont Colleges, will share these sessions. Supplementing their academic expertise in all things Israel and Judaism, they lead archaeological digs every summer in Acre (Akko), a city in northwestern Israel.
The class will offer an overview of archaeological digs in Israel, providing a foundational narrative of Jewish history. This will include Jewish sites of interest and Christian and Muslim sites as well. Findings of specific periods will be discussed from a variety of religious, historical and political perspectives.
