Upcoming Events

* Jennie Ebeling to Present Results of the 2013 Season at Jezreel

Associate Professor of Archaeology Jennie Ebeling will present the results of the 2013 field season at Jezreel in "The View from Jezebel's Window: Recent Archaeological Discoveries at Jezreel, Israel" on Sunday, August 18 at 7:00 pm at Temple Adath B'nai Israel, 8440 Newburgh Road. Refreshments to follow. For four weeks in May-June, Ebeling and Jezreel co-director Norma Franklin of the University of Haifa led a team of approximately 35, including 12 UE students and alumni, in the excavation of Jezreel, in Israel's Galilee. The team uncovered remains of occupation dating back 4,500 years as well as a very large and well-preserved Iron Age winery dating to the period when Ahab and Jezebel lived at Jezreel ca. 9th century B.C.E. Learn about these and other exciting finds - as well as our plans for the future - this Sunday evening.
