Dr. Rachel Havrelock

In partnership with the North Shore Chavurah of Rabbis, Spertus is proud to again co-sponsor Kallah, a series of free lectures and courses that take place on Chicago’s North Shore.

At this session, Dr. Rachel Havrelock speaks on "Biblical Israel in Modern Israel." How does modern Israel resemble ancient Israel? Does the territory match up? Are the political systems similar? By looking at the books of Joshua and Judges and discussing the challenges facing Israel today, we build a bridge from the past to the present.
