Interpreting a Place- Is the City a Talmudic Book

By David Stoleru

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, June 2012

David Stoleru introduces The Beit Project, which promotes a new perspective on place, one that understands heritage as a complex set of relationships. The preservation of a site becomes an opportunity to enable educational interactions. We generally think of preservation as the conservation of a building or artifact, but preservation should be a verb. We should emphasize the use of a heritage site as a platform to raise awareness of how contemporary society links its past, present, and future.
