Samson in Stone: New Discoveries in the Ancient Synagogue at Huqoq in Israel's Galilee
Join Professor Jodi Magness in a slide-illustrated lecture describing exciting, recent finds from excavations in the ancient village of Huqoq in Israel's Galilee. Professor Magness leads a consortium of universities in a project that began in 2011 and has uncovered mosaics and other material from a fifth century, C.E. synagogue. She will also discuss the possible implications of the discoveries for understanding Jewish religious life in ancient Galilee.
 

How Science Can Expand
Our Spiritual Horizons
The Institute for Science and Judaism seeks to foster dynamic dialogue between Science and Judaism. We sponsor lectures and workshops featuring distinguished scientists and religious scholars that address philosophical, ethical, spiritual and practical issues at the intersection of Science and Religion. As the only Jewish organization in the Washington-Baltimore area with this focus, the Institute's programs have been held in Reform, Reconstructionist, Conservative, and Orthodox congregations.
