Wait List Only- Mark Twain in the Holy Land

A private tour with Rabbi Soloveichik at the New-York Historical Society

Sunday, February 2, 11:30AM
Sunday, February 2, 12:30PM

In 1867, a young Mark Twain departed New York Harbor on the steamship Quaker City for a five-and-a-half-month excursion, with stops in Europe and around the Mediterranean, including the land of Israel. His funny, scathing, and revealing observations eventually became one of the bestselling travelogues of all time.
Anyone who attended Rabbi Soloveichik’s sweeping and fascinating lecture this past Tisha B’Ab has already been oriented to Mark Twain’s poignant impressions of the holy land. Now you can join Rabbi Solovechik, who will enhance this exhibit at the New York Historical Society with his unique perspective, context, stories, and insights. 

THIS EVENT IS CURRENTLY SOLD OUT. To join our waitlist, please contact Sarah Gross with your name and the number of people in your party.
