Rabbi Avrohom Stolik will speak on the “The Archaeological Claim to Jerusalem” at Chabad of Upper Passaic County in Haskell, on Wednesday, June 28, at 6:45 p.m.

The multimedia presentation centers on the single most contentious issue in the Middle East conflict between Jews and Arabs: The Palestinian denial of the Jewish historical claim to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.

“In recent years, archaeological discoveries in the ancient city of Jerusalem and throughout the Land of Israel have uncovered key findings that present a powerful and convincing case for the biblical story and for the Jewish claim to Israel — even for those who have a hard time believing,” said Rabbi Mendy Gurkov, director of Chabad of Upper Passaic County.

Stolik has received wide acclaim as a biblical archaeological scholar. In the presentation, he will share his extensive knowledge of Jewish history and secular Bible study as well as his passion for biblical archaeology. He has created a unique presentation that includes imagery, diagrams and videos that can benefit anyone, whether he or she has been to Israel before or not, or has any background in history or archaeology.

“These are 'hot button' issues facing Jews today and Israel in particular,” Gurkov said. “Now, you can arm yourself with the facts on the ground — and underground.”

Light refreshments will be served. The cost is $15 in advance, $18 at the door. For information, call 201-696-7609 or go to jewishhighlands.org.
