An Interesting Exhibit

I recently had a chance to visit the recently opened Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in Cleveland, Ohio. It has been running a special exhibit titled 'The Cradle of Christianity.'

The items on display are a wide variety of archeological items from the Holy Land that are of historic value for both Jews and Christians. It gives an interesting look at life during the early Christian period.

If this exhibit is available at some point in an area close to you, I would highly recomend taking the time to see the it. It had dinnerware, tombware, and even a large portion of an early period church to see.

One of the most facinating items was a large segment of the Dead Sea Scroll known as the 'Temple Scroll.'

While I would say much of the exhibit is aimed at Christians more than at Jews, it is still very interesting. This is the first time any of the items that were on display had been outside of Israel. The tour is starting here, but I am not sure where else it is going.
