Thursday, April 26, 2018 11 Iyar 5778

7:30 PM - 9:00 PMSAJ

Second Annual Hugh Baron Memorial Lecture

Dr. Elsie Stern, V P for Academic Affairs and Associate Professor of Bible at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College will speak on "Becoming Bible:How Ancient Texts Became Holy and How They Stayed That Way" 


The collection that we call the Bible and the ideas we hold about it are the end product of centuries of composition, redaction, engagement and interpretation.   Come join Elsie Stern as she explores key turning points in the process of "becoming Bible" and how they affect our relationship with biblical texts today.


This will be the second 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 aim to present exciting discoveries and new understandings achieved by contemporary Jewish scholars but not yet known to the general or Jewish public.


Lecture is followed by a dessert reception, please register below for planning purposes. 

Sorry, Registration has ended.
