'Before it is too late'
To the Editor:

The history of the Jewish people can be traced genealogically and historically through the Bible, the writings of Josephus and other famed historians, but also, critically important to today's scientifically oriented seekers, through the incredible archeological discoveries of the ruins of ancient Jerusalem and other famous Biblical locations. Decades of digging have produced a treasure trove of exciting findings!
