Alumni, students, faculty, and staff: Join us on Wednesday, May 13, from 12:00 - 1:15 pm ET as Rabbi Michael Marmur, Ph.D., presents "A New Yavneh – Jewish Thought in America Since 1934" on Zoom. Rabbi Marmur, Associate Professor of Jewish Theology, and Rabbi David Ellenson, Ph.D., Chancellor Emeritus, edited the anthology American Jewish Thought Since 1934, published by Brandeis University Press. In this session, Dr. Marmur will set out some of the key themes and preoccupations of Jewish thinkers in America over the last eighty years. We will look at a recurrent theme to be found in the book – the parallel between the reconstruction of Judaism following the destruction of the Second Temple, and the attempt to construct Jewish life in North America.
