On Thursday May 21st “you have the opportunity to see part of a first century synagogue where Jesus likely stood, preached and made disciples.” The event will take place in the Paradise Ballroom at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa and no admission charge or reservations are required.

Eamon Kelly and Juan Solana are bringing “pieces of the Holy Land to Reno and will take you inside the extraordinary archaeological project they oversee on the shore of the Sea of Galilee.” These two oversee the 20-acre site that was discovered in 2009 in Magdala. Check out this article in the New York Times describing the project site.
