Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks,
a global religious leader, philosopher and bestselling author, will
explore how words and texts have powerfully shaped 4,000 years of Jewish
history and how Jews have gone about interpreting, treasuring, and
adding to texts through times of political challenges and cultural
changes. Assistant Professor in the Ohio State University’s department
of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures, Lynn Kaye, an expert on rabbinic
literature and Jewish thought and past Assistant Congregational Leader
at Congregation Shearith Israel, will join Rabbi Sacks in conversation
following his talk.
