Speaker – Gene Smith
Israel is a treasure trove of historical, ethnic, political and religious ideas all mixed up together.

The area has been fought over endlessly throughout history and is a holy land to the Jews, Christians and Muslims. We will take a look at this storied place and finish with a look at Jordan’s spectacular stone city of Petra, as well as Greek and Roman ruins.
