Thursday, 2/9/2017 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM Export event
Ruth Andrew Ellenson, author of The Modern Jewish Girl's Guide to Guilt, and Ari Y. Kelman, Jim Joseph Chair in Education and Jewish Studies at the Stanford Graduate School of Education, will discuss the late Edgar M. Bronfman's book Why Be Jewish?
Ms. Ellenson was Bronfman's literary collaborator on this compelling reflection on what it means to be Jewish in the modern age. The topics of Jewish identity, ritual, faith, secularism and the future of the Jewish world will be addressed. As the book jacket of Why Be Jewish? states, Edgar Bronfman "makes a compelling case for the meaning and transcendence of a secular Judaism that is still steeped in deep moral values, authentic Jewish texts and a focus on deed over creed or dogma.” The talk will be followed by a Q & A session.
Part of our Jewish Luminaries series and in collaboration with the Jewish Book Council and The Samuel Bronfman Foundation
