      After the stunning victory of the Six-Day War in 1967, Jewish people returned to the old city of Jerusalem. Within the blink of an eye, they began to drink-in its sanctity, to rebuild, thanks to much sacrifice only 44 years ago. We invite you to join us for a virtual tour of the Western Wall tunnels with Yohanna Zermati, Director of Distance Learning, in the Western Wall Heritage Foundation Educational Department. Yohanna's appreciation of this special place comes through loud and clear!. 

      Not a conference goes by without a discussion of the Elah Fortress (Khirbet Qeiyafa), and/or the ostracon with its ancient writing. A voice in the epigraphy conversation is Dr. Christopher A. Rollston, a John Hopkins PHD, now the Toyozo Nakarai Professor of Old Testament and Semitics; Emmanuel Christian Seminary, and editor of the Maarav journal. Chris clearly explains the core issues and raises interesting points for consideration and understanding of this unique find. As a friend of Anson Rainey ob "m, Dr. Rollston shares a personal story. Learn more from this scholar at his blog, and his latest book, Writing and Literacy in the World of Ancient Israel: Epigraphic Evidence from the Iron Age.
