Eretz Israel 150 Years Ago 10.30am Sunday 30 August
Beryl Ratzer, originally from South Africa, is now living in Netanya and has worked as a guide in Israel for over twenty years. She combines her extensive knowledge of Israeli archaeology, geography and history with her great love of Israel. Her book, A Historical Tour of the Holy Land is a concise history of the Land of Israel for the amateur historian. Beryl's talk will cover the last decades of the 19th century and will relate to the Jewish and non-Jewish populations, including the German Christian settlers who were known as the Templars. Mark Twain described the land in 1867 in his book Innocents Abroad as a desolate country. Beryl will recount the fascinating history of events of the time

..because we choose to live in Israel
