Falmouth Jewish Congregation and the Worcester JCC invite everyone to this engaging presentation about a compelling topic - of interest to people of all faiths, in addition to fans of history and archeology.
Under Jerusalem takes readers into the tombs, tunnels, and trenches of the Holy City. It brings to life the indelible characters who have investigated this subterranean landscape.
