Comprehensive Bible Tour at the British Museum with Rabbi Arye Forta

Price : online or over the telephone 020 7794 4655

The Tanach (the Jewish Bible) covers the earliest and most formative period of Jewish history. Yet, it is not only about the past. It is subtly intertwined with the most fundamental aspects of our lives shaping the way we unterstand ourselves, our kinship with other Jews and our place within and responsibilites towards the wider humanity. The Tanach is, in a very real sense, the introductory chapter of each Jew's autobiography; each one of our lives being a subplot in its never ending narrative. Your Tour will be a face encounter with key aspects of this timeless story.

What we will see:

The Tour will focus mainly on our ancestors; encounter with:(a) Egypt,examining the career of joseph plus our ancestors' slavery and exodus; (b) Assyria, illustrating a terrifying passage from II kings; (c) Persia, where we will look at items relevant to the Book Of Esther.

Please bring your own headphones with you.
