    There is a unique opportunity in Washington, D.C. for scholars, students, alumni and friends of the Consortium to learn about the modern day descendants of the Samaritans of the Bible. Yeshiva University has developed an award winning film – The Samaritans: A Biblical People. It presents the history and modern life of the Samaritan community that continues to thrive in Israel/Palestine. They are a rich community with a unique Biblical canon, distinctive practices of Biblical law, and the modern struggles of continued identity and flourishing as a religious minority.

    The Consortium has secured a limited number of tickets for entry to the Museum of the Bible on this day, which includes admission to the special screening of the film, and a discussion. A panel of experts from the Yeshiva University, the Museum, and the Washington Theological Consortium will follow the screening with commentary and discussion. The screening and panel are scheduled for Friday, September 16 from 3 – 5 pm. Ticket recipients can gain entry to the Museum any time that day to view the special exhibit and other exhibits. Classes are encouraged to come as a group! (Professors, please email or call us directly about this possibility). 

    Current faculty, students, alumni, and friends of the Consortium  are welcome to apply to for a free ticket to the Museum that day, which includes admission to the screening and panel discussion. Entries in the application form below will be reviewed, and you will be notified soon about your eligibility.

    Full cost of admission to the Museum of the Bible and this special program are being covered by the Consortium for those eligible. Those who receive a ticket may enter the Museum at any time of the day to enjoy the other exhibits.
