Ever wonder what daily life was like for the ancient Israelites? Did you know the bread Abraham gives to his divine visitors would have taken Sarah upwards of six hours to prepare? Or consider a woman who had as many children as Leah spent fourteen to twenty-one years of her life breastfeeding? Join Dr. Kristine Henriksen Garroway as she discusses how archaeology can help illuminate the Torah. Over bagels and breakfast, she’ll walk us through four sets of texts and the different archaeological finds related to these texts to help us understand them in a deeper, more meaningful way.
