Hebrew Bible discussion group

No Hebrew reading skills required.

Led by an experienced Israeli Archeology teacher, the course includes reading selected chapters from the Hebrew Bible, followed by a discussion. Gain a new understanding of the ancient world, and examine unsolved questions that arise from this rich and influential text.

  • Can findings from archeological sites and text from other ancient religions reveal hidden messages in the bible?
  • Can our knowledge of Israel’s geography help us better understand the biblical text?
  • Can a comparative approach between the Hebrew and English versions reveal meanings that were “lost in translation”?

Instructor Tal Holzman holds a BA in Art and Archeology from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and an MA in desert studies. She studied the ancient desert roads in the Negev and Arava and led bible reading groups in California and Israel.
