Dear Friends of Temple Studies,
We invite you to join us on February 7 at The Leonardo museum in Salt Lake City to take in the Dead Sea Scrolls Exhibit: Life and Faith in Ancient Times. Salt Lake is one of only ten cities in the U.S. to host the Scrolls before they return to Israel. For general information about this exhibition, see http://www.theleonardo.
We have arranged for a 1pm introductory lecture, followed by Q&A, with Risa Kohn, a prominent Scrolls scholar who is a main curator of the exhibit. At 2pm we will enter the exhibit itself, which generally requires about two hours to survey adequately. We have also arranged special pricing for our group: $15 per person (rather than the standard $24 price). In order to secure this price and a seat at the lecture, however, one will need to register by January 15 via the link below.
You are of course free to visit the exhibit without the lecture and on your own at the regular price on some other occasion; the exhibit will remain at the museum into April, though it is hard to anticipate the crowds toward the exhibits closing date in warm weather.
