HAIFA — The summer of
1983 marked the fifth con-
secutive year that the Uni-
versity of Marburg in West
Germany sent a contingent
of students and researchers
to aid the University of Hai-
fa's excavations at Tel Acco
on Israel's Mediterranean
coast.
To Diethelm Conrad, a
professor in the University
of Marburg's department of
Protestant Theology and
holder of the university's
Chair in Biblical Hebrew,
Biblical Archeology and
Historical Geography,
working on the excavations
was not only a chance to
learn about the past, but a
way to place better, more in-
formed pastors on the pul-
pit.
Prof. Conrad believes
that it is important for
many of the participating
students to learn that the
stories of the Bible are in-
tertwined to this day with
the land of Israel.

The waiting period be-
tween eating meat and
dairy meals varies between
Orthodox communities.
Among German and West
European Jews the custom
has been to wait three
hours. East European Jews
generally waited six hours.
Among Dutch Jews the cus-
tom was to wait 72 minutes.
—Alfred Kolatch

From the beginning of
the cooperative Univer-
sity of Haifa-University
of Marburg program,
Prof. Conrad has seen it
as much more than an
exercise in archeology.
To him it has been the ve-
hicle for developing a
package designed to
teach understanding,
cooperation and arche-
ology.
Prof. Conrad led the first
group of Germans to Tel
Acco and since that time his
team has been an integral
part of the dig, working

primarily on the eastern
edge of the tel. This year
they uncovered an area of
housing that dates from the
Iron Age.
"In the past years of exca-
vation we dug through the
Hellenistic and Persian
levels, which were almost
completely destroyed," the
professor said. "This Iron
Age level is very exciting
The walls of the houses are
intact. We brought out a
large number of artifacts
including tools, pottery and
an Astarte (fertility god-
dess)."
