From Abraham to Ezra: Israel’s Earliest Encounters with Ancient Iraq

Sun, 22 Oct, 2017 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Biblical narratives locate Iraq as the origin of the first patriarch, Abraham.  As history unfolds, Iraq (then known as Assyria and Babylonia) plays a major role, sometimes friendly but mostly quite unfriendly.  Yet following the return of exiles from Babylon under the leadership of Ezra, many Jews remained in Iraq and generations later some were the compilers of the Babylonian Talmud.  This illustrated presentation will introduce the impact ancient Iraq had on the development of ancient Israel and Judaism.
