Rabbi David Ellenson, Ph.D., Chancellor Emeritus, will present “How to Honor the Departed: A Rabbinic Opinion by Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch.” This writing deals with a question the New Orleans Jewish community posed to Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch (1808-1888) of Frankfurt, Germany, on the optimal way to honor the memory of Judah Touro, the leading Jewish philanthropist in the United States during the mid-19th century.
