Hugh Baron Memorial Lecture
Monday, April 3, 2017 • 7 Nisan 57777:30 PM - 9:30 PMSAJ
This will be the the first of several annual lectures made possible through the generosity of Hugh's family, in memory of Hugh, and in honor of his tremendous contributions to the SAJ Tish Program throughout the last decade and a half of his life. These lectures will present exciting discoveries and new understandings achieved by contemporary Jewish scholars but not yet known to the general or Jewish public.
Our first lecturer, Rabbi Manuel Gold, is an engaging speaker and an out-of- the-box scholar who is unafraid to follow the evidence when it conflicts with received opinion. He has taught at Hebrew Union College and at the Academy for Jewish Religion, and has lectured to both academic and lay groups. His lecture will present a new and truly revolutionary view of the background and purpose of the Passover Haggadah, and the implications for us of this new understanding. It is guaranteed to give you much to talk about at your seder the following week, if you can wait that long!
The lecture is free and open to the public, and will be followed by a dessert reception in the social hall. We ask you to help our planning by letting us know, below, if you will be attending and how many will be in your party.

welcome to the sAJ community
We’re a community that believes it’s possible to lead a 21st-century life that is deeply rooted in both Jewish tradition and contemporary civilization. Judaism helps us find meaning and inspiration as we seek to lead lives committed to spiritual growth, social justice, and building community. We welcome the richness that diversity brings to this community, where we learn about, struggle with, and even question our Judaism as we continue to "reconstruct" it for our times.
