There is a unique opportunity in Washington, D.C. for students, faculty, 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 exhibit and special screening of the film. The screening is scheduled for Tuesday, November 8 from 1:00 – 2:30 pm. Ticket recipients can gain admission 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).
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.
