ADULT EDUCATION AT Chabad of Western Monmouth County (WMC) invites the public to a presentation by biblical archaeology scholar Rabbi Avrohom Stolik on June 27 at 7:30 p.m.
Hailed as the “Jewish Indiana Jones,” Stolik will present historical evidence of the Jewish people’s connection to Jerusalem that dates back to the days of David and Solomon.
“In recent years, archaeological discoveries in the ancient city of Jerusalem and throughout the Land of Israel have uncovered key findings that present a powerful and convincing case for the biblical narrative and for the Jewish claim to Israel,” said Rabbi Levi Wolosow, director of Adult Education at Chabad WMC.
Stolik will share his passion for archaeology and his extensive knowledge of Jewish history and biblical analysis. In particular, he will address UNESCO’s resolution that denies Israel’s claims to the Temple Mount and the Western Wall.
“These are ‘hot button issues’ facing society today and Israel in particular,” said Rabbi Boruch Chazanow, director of Chabad WMC. “This is a unique opportunity for people to learn facts on the ground — and underground.”
The event will take place at Chabad House in Manalapan. $15; $10 in advance. Reserve at chabadwmc.org/Jerusalem or call 732-972-3687.
