  1. Prof. Ronny Reich and Eli Shukron will tell us about recent discoveries in the city of David. They have previously excavated the massive Spring Tower, located near the Gihon Spring, and another massive "tower" adjacent to the nearby pool. They must have realized by now that the "Pool Tower" is not a tower at all. They will tell us that this Jebusite construction is a fortified passageway leading up the slope to the Water Gate. Portions of this gate were uncovered by Kathleen Kenyon.

  2. I am a librarian at the Wayland Baptist University and I am attempting to obtain a copy of the following study presented by Dr. Doron Ben-Ami for a faculty member of our university:
