The Path of Abraham with Tom Riddle


Ravenna native, Tom Riddle, will be at Reed Memorial Library on Sunday, December 2 at 2:00 pm to discuss what it was like for him, in eight days, to walk most of the route that scholars believe Jesus used as he traveled south from the north of Palestine to Jericho in the south. Using his own photographs and movies Riddle will discuss what it was like to walk “The Path of Abraham” as well as the practicalities of making such a walk. The modern history and politics of the region will be touched on, but that is not the major theme of the talk. Registration is required for this event.
