"The Ten Lost Tribes of Israel Aren’t Lost (and never were)"

Tuesday, June 19
7:00 p.m.

Facilitated by Howard Schickler  Please contact Howard directly to register for the class.

Speculating on the whereabouts of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel has been popular for longer than the search for the Ark of the Covenant and the Holy Grail. Suggestions for where they ended up have ranged from America and Britain to India and Africa, and virtually every place in between. However, few proper investigations of this “mystery” have been conducted. Now, utilizing three separate and completely independent sources—the Biblical account, contemporary neo-Assyrian inscriptions, and archaeological remains from both the northern kingdom of Israel and the southern kingdom of Judah—it can be confidently shown that the Ten Tribes of Israel were never lost.

The presenter:
Eric H. Cline is Professor of Classics and Anthropology and Director of the Capitol Archaeological Institute at The George Washington University. He is also author or editor of over 15 books and 100 articles including Three Stones Make a Wall: The Story of Archaeology (Princeton, 2017). Cline is the Co-director of the Kabri Archaeological Project at Tel Kabri, Israel. He was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in 2014 and has won BAS’ Best Popular Book on Archaeology Award three times (2001, 2009, and 2011).

Family Promise

Sunday, July 8 - 15
Family Promise is a program through which houses of worship provide housing for families in transition for a week at a time.  Am Yisrael offers housing twice a year: in early July and late December.  We are in need of volunteers to stay overnight, help feed our guests, and make them feel welcome in our buildings.  Claudia and Gerry Linda head up this meaningful and worthwhile program.  
Contact them directly for details or to volunteer.
