Embark on a thought-provoking journey through the intricate history of Israel with Avi Ben Hur in this three-part series.

Delve into the depths of historical narratives and contested landscapes as we explore the rich heritage and complex relationships that have shaped the region.

We’re excited to host educators on this Zoom, who are earning professional development credits for their learning. Consequently, the program may differ from what we usually experience with Avi, but he will still be expertly leading the content while he suggests instructional ideas for the educators.
