Speaker: Dr. Michael Berenbaum, writer, lecturer, and
teacher consulting in the conceptual development of museums and the
development of historical films
Location: Ohr Kodesh Congregation; Chevy Chase, MD
Dr. Berenbaum speaks about the lives of Martin Buber, Franz Rosenzweig, and Gershom Scholem. Their different but intersecting journeys back toward Judaism had an incredible impact on Jewish life and secured places for Buber, Rosenzweig, and Scholem as three of the most influential Jews of the 20th century.
This program is the annual Abraham S. Kay lecture, made possible by the generosity of Jack Kay.
