Jana Riess traveled to Israel in late spring as part of a group of Christian journalists under the auspices of the American Jewish Committee. She will be sharing her impressions of the trip with the First Friday group at Northern Hills Synagogue on Friday, February 7th at 8:00 p.m. 

Jana is uniquely qualified to offer professional views of her visit to Israel. She is a senior columnist for the Religion News Service and has spent twenty years in the religion publishing industry. She received her PhD in American religious history from Columbia University, an MDiv from Princeton Theological Seminary and her BA from Wellesley College. She is eager to talk about her tour of Israel.
