The Land of River Jordan
May 11 (Thursday)
Time: 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Venue: Auditorium, Ottawa Public Library, Main Branch, 120 Metcalfe
Admission: Free
The Holy Land is an area roughly located around the Jordan River. Historically, it is the land of civilisations and cultures for more than 5000 years. The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is located in the heart of the holy land.

The Jordan River runs through the land and history of the Bible, giving its waters a spiritual significance that sets it aside from other rivers. Part of the significance of the land stems from the religious significance of many places, like the Baptism Site of Jesus Christ are and Mount Nebo, where Moses presumably died.
Many sites in the Holy Land have long been pilgrimage destinations for adherents of the Abrahamic religions, mostly visiting the Holy Land to touch and see physical manifestations of their faith, confirm their beliefs in the holy context with collective excitation, and connect personally to the Holy Land.
