World Exploration Lecture

The Valene L. Smith Museum of Anthropology’s Presents:

Two Weeks in Israel: A Secular Sojourn to the Holy Land

Join us on Sunday, October 16th from 4-5 pm at the Chico Women’s Club as CSU, Chico Professor of Psychology, Dr. Dory Schachner, presents a talk about her recent sojourn to Israel. 

Visit a land of contrasts – rich with thousands of years of history but also a country on the cutting edge of modernity and the forefront of technology.

Since its establishment as a state in 1948, Israel has been a beacon of hope, a leader in technological innovation, and a source of bitter and violent controversy. 

From Jerusalem and the Western Wall to a Shavuot celebration at a kibbutz to a terrorist attack in Tel Aviv, Dr. Schachner will discuss her experiences as well as address some of the myths and misconceptions about this tiny country that has managed to survive and thrive in spite of the odds. 

World Explorations is a lecture series sponsored by the Valene L. Smith Museum of Anthropology.  The talk is free and open to the public. 

The Chico Women’s Club is located at 592 E. 3rd Street in downtown Chico.
