Tanach Tour at the British Museum by Rabbi Arye Forta POSTPONED

Price : online or over the telephone Contact: 020 7794 4655


The Tanach 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 understand ourselves, our kinship with other Jews and our place within and responsibilities towardshe 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 to 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.

If you have headphones, please bring them with you.
