Tel Gezer


Today, January 30th, 2019, we visited Tel Gezer. This tiyul was about the path that Abram took from Haran to Israel in the biblical time period. on this tiyul, we learned about the culture of the Canaanites and the Israelites that have lived in this area. We walked around their settlements on the hill and learned about why archeologists dug there in the first place, because of the three D's. We discussed the stories of Abram and how they relate to this ancient society, and how this society relates to the bible. This tiyul contributed to my thoughts on Jewish history because we talked about how God should be viewed, especially in the story about Abraham be willing to sacrifice Isaac. This story made me look at the way that we examine God and how we examine how God should influence our lives. - Emma
