Travel to Jerusalem at program Sunday

By
From page A4 | January 20, 2012 |

Jerusalem’s fascinating and complicated history, archeology and legalities will be discussed at 3 p.m. Sunday in the Congregation Bet Haverim Social Hall, 1715 Anderson Road.

“Jerusalem, the Undivided Capital of Israel: Geography and History” is sponsored by the CBH Israel Matters Committee. The program features speakers George Rooks and Ed Rabin.

Rooks, who lives for part of the year in Israel, will discuss the geographical and archaeological aspects of Jerusalem. Rabin, a UC Davis emeritus professor of law, will cover the international legal status of the city.

Through maps, other visuals and narrative, the program will trace the history of Jerusalem from its ancient past to its vibrant and sometimes contentious present. A focus will be on the city’s archaeological treasures and its location on the crest of the Judean hills that separate the Mediterranean Ocean and the Dead Sea. Also discussed will be Jerusalem’s Israeli sovereignty and the importance of the city being undivided.

Jerusalem is Judaism’s holiest city and is also considered sacred to Christians and Muslims. Governed for 1,000 years by Judeans and continuously inhabited for 3,000 years by Jews, Jerusalem was conquered at various times by Persians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Crusaders, Ottomans and the British.

For more information, contact Rooks at [email protected].
