(NASHVILLE) — State Representative Roger Kane (R-Knoxville) invites his constituents, colleagues, and citizens of Tennessee to a rare viewing of significant religious, historical, and cultural documents.
Copies of the Old Testament texts, Torah Scrolls, a scroll of the Book of Esther, and other important religious documents will be on display at the State Capitol in Nashville on Thursday, April 5, 2018.
Visitors to the Capitol that day will be able to see these documents — some of which have survived the Holocaust, as well as a secret airlift out of Yemen in the late 1940s — outside the Senate Chamber from 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM.
Additionally, representatives from the Mikra Research Laboratories will host a special forum in the Supreme Court Chambers related to this unique event.
“This is an unprecedented opportunity for Tennesseans to view some of our world’s historical, religious, and cultural treasures,” said Chairman Kane. “I know our residents and those across Tennessee will enjoy this extremely rare occasion, and I encourage them to participate.”
Religious leaders and citizens of all faiths are welcome.
