In Celebration of “The Samaritans: A Biblical People”
Join the Yeshiva University Center for Israel Studies for the launch of The Samaritans: A Biblical People, a world-first film, book, cookbook and art exhibition project.
The Samaritans have been around for thousands of years, tracing their lineage to the “lost” northern tribes of Israel and living alongside Jews, Christians and Muslims for centuries. Yet, this ancient group remains a mystery, which Dr. Fine and an international team of scholars, historians, artists and Yeshiva University students have spent the last six years unravelling.
The culmination of their years long work is now being unveiled in a breakthrough showcase called The Samaritans: A Biblical People – a multimedia, interactive experience of the Samaritan Israelites, their world, their place in Jewish history and their relevance today in Western civilization. It marks the first time the most important artifacts preserved in museums and libraries worldwide – including paintings, manuscripts, priceless books, photography, ritual objects and archaeological discoveries from Greece, Italy and Israel – have been compiled to illuminate this eye-opening history that reveals important lessons in reconciliation, and the potential for interfaith dialogue and cooperation.
