About the Speaker: Myra Kahn Adams,
Executive Director National Shroud of Turin Exhibit.org

Myra Kahn Adams leads a team of Shroud of Turin experts with the mission of producing a permanent Shroud exhibit in Washington, D.C. The Shroud replica at CIC is her team’s first mini-exhibit. The National Shroud of Turin Exhibit is a project of SignFromGod.org, a ministry that began in November 2017 to promote Shroud education. Then, in May 2018, SignFromGod spearheaded an effort culminating at the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C., to host their successful February through July 2022 Shroud exhibit.

Myra has written extensively about the Shroud of Turin with numerous credits, including National Review.com. She is an avid proponent of 21st century testing. Notably, in 2019 she wrote “Open Letter to Pope Francis: Time to Re-Test the Shroud” and was informed that the Pope’s personal secretary had received her letter.

Myra has authored two books “Bible Study For Those Who Don’t Read the Bible” Part One and Two. These are compilations of her Townhall.com weekly Sunday Bible study column started in February 2020. She is also a regular op-ed contributor to The Hill and RealClearPolitics.
