Community for discussion for Qumran and the Dead Sea Scrolls

This is a community for those who wish to discuss, learn, teach, and understand the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Qumran community, Second Temple Judaism, and the impact of the DSS on religion!

Everyone is welcome to join - whether you're just curious about what the Dead Sea Scrolls are, or if you are very knowledgable in the field!

Please remember, this community is for learning and teaching. There is only room for friendly debate here.
