CANCELLED: Ancient and Modern World Lecture Series: Professor Jodi Magness

Thursday, January 18, 7 p.m.

We regret to announce this program has been cancelled due to inclement weather.

Since 2011, Professor Jodi Magness has been directing excavations in the ancient village of Huqoq in Israel's Galilee.  The excavations have brought to light the remains of a monumental Late Roman (fifth century) synagogue building paved with stunning and unique mosaics, including biblical scenes and the first non-biblical story ever discovered decorating an ancient synagogue. 

In this slide-illustrated lecture, Professor Magness describes these exciting finds, including the discoveries made in last summer's season. For more information visit
