Yetziat Mitzraim - the Exodus - is under attack. The basic assumptions that have informed the Jewish experience - and Jewish identity for millennia are being challenged as never before. Join Foundation Stone as we examine the Exodus - Fact or Fiction - to see whether there is any evidence for this event - and if one of the primary pillars of the Jewish people is real or imagined.

  • Community
    The TOARCH program has been a hit at community events in Carlsbad, Coronado, La Jolla, San Diego, Baltimore, and Chicago. One of the most exciting programs to date, were sessions at the Leichtag Ranch Hub in Encinitas, and with Leichtag Foundation director Jim Farley. In addition to JCC events, we’ve also been welcomed at the Centre for Jewish Culture (CJC) in San Diego County, and the Centre for Jewish Education (CJE) in Baltimore - one of our core sponsors for TOARCH ’12 Baltimore.
  • Synagogues
    The central TOARCH program has been our Torah & Archaeology Shabbaton. The first event was held at KINS (Knesset Israel Nusach Sefard) in Chicago in 2012. Last year (2013) the program was run at Ner Tamid in Baltimore. Rabbi Yisrael Motzen was quick to open his synagogue to us, and hosted the program with great care and professionalism. And in 2014, the program was run at Beth Jacob of San Diego. Our thanks go out to rabbis Leonard Matanky, Yaacov Motzen, and Avram Bogopulsky. A special shout out and thank you goes to Rabbi Pinny Roth in San Diego who opened his home and his friendship to our team. It really meant a lot to us.

    On the youth level, we’re thrilled to be able to work with organizations like NCSY. In Baltimore and San Diego we’ve participated in programming during Shabbat and the week for high school students, such as “Latte and Learning,” Shabbatonim, and public school programs.
