Upcoming Event Highlights


The DNA of the Jewish People
Sunday, October 7 | 10:00 am

Some say Jews are descendants of those Judeans exiled by the Romans in the later 1st century. Others claim they are descendants of Khazars, an 8th century Turkic people whose rulers converted into Judaism. While opinions are wonderful and welcome, there is only one set of actual facts. Let’s explore them!
