Washington DC

The Bible Museum

I was privileged to visit the new Bible Museum as part of the weekend program called TOARCH Silver Spring Feb 19-25, 2018, on behalf of Foundation Stone.

At the museum, there were two simultaneous tours, the first was in the IAA (Israel Antiquities Authority) supplied room of artifacts from Ancient Israel, lead by my father  Rabbi Barnea Levi Selavan. The second was in the Qeiyafa Exhibition entitled In the Valley of David and Goliath, originally exhibited in the Bible Lands Museum, Jerusalemguided by co-founder of Foundation Stone, David Willner.

Both have an intimate connection with the site from its very launching, and thus have an insider’s view, which was a captivating tale.

After that, we explored highlights of ancient scrolls and publications.
