Tu BiSh’vat: Water, Water, Water! From the Bible to Start Up Nation

Thu January 28, 2021 at 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

Virtual Event

Mike Hollander brings Israel to life on a day that celebrates nature and our connection to Eretz Yisrael

The Bible describes Israel as “… a land with streams and springs and fountains issuing from plain and hills” and not a land of great rivers like the Nile, Tigris, and Euphrates. This session will explore how for millennia, from our ancestors until the modern era, residents of Israel have had to ensure enough water to farm and live here. The challenges have been enormous but not insurmountable, as Israel has become a world-renowned leader in water technology.
