Introductory Class, Saturday, February 10 1:30 PM
Museum Visits Sunday, March 4 & 18, 12-5 PM
This fabulous (and somewhat controversial) museum traces the creation of the Torah from its Mesopotamian and Canaanite roots through the Israelite monarchy to its codification in 5th Century Persia. Two and one-half floors of the museum focus upon the Jewish story of our most sacred texts before moving into the creation of the Christian Bible and the impact of both texts upon the world. Among a few of the highlighted artifacts are;
· Dead Sea Scroll Fragments
· Saadia Gaon’s 7th Century handwritten prayer book (the first siddur in Jewish History)
· A first printed edition of Maimonides Mishna Torah (Italy 1517)
· First Edition Gutenberg Bible (1454)
· Thomas Jefferson’s Bible
and much, much more.
To introduce you to the collection and to deepen attendees understanding of the importance of the artifacts therein, Rabbi Schnitzer will hold an introductory class (optional) on Saturday, February 10 at 1:30 PM.
Students’ tickets (age 18 and younger) available at a discount by contacting the office at email@example.com or 301-469-8636.
