Did Abraham really journey to Canaan? Did the Exodus story actually happen? What stories are myth and what stories are historically accurate? By considering various historical, archeological and literature studies as well as biblical texts, we will try to ascertain whether the big events really happened and why the biblical writers included them in the Bible.

Dr. Eran Vaisben is the Executive Director of the Inland and Desert Hillel. He earned his Master’s Degree in Jewish Education at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York and, in 2014, completed his doctoral degree in Educational Leadership at The University of California, Davis.
