In a previous post, we reported on the new archaeological finds in the Jaffa Gate area. If you are in Jerusalem this week (and understand Hebrew!), you may enjoy attending this lecture, which will take place in the Yad Ben Zvi Institute, 12 Abarbanel Street, Rehavia, Jerusalem.
Yad Ben Zvi will host a program Tuesday evening, October 12, 2010, from 6-8 pm, devoted to lectures and responses on “New Finds in Jaffa Gate”. The talks are by the lead excavators Ofer Sion and Architect Shahar Poni.
The MC is Hillel Geva, director of the Israel Exploration Society, intimately familiar with Old City excavations over decades, who is currently publishing the final excavation reports of Nachman Avigad’s work in the Old City.
