Join philosopher Dr. Michael Chighel (Milton Friedman Egyetem, Budapest) and historian Dr. Henry Abramson (Touro College, New York) for a conversation on the way this moving Biblical passage has resonated throughout Jewish culture over the centuries.

  1. Outstanding! I just finished writing a tour “The Reception of the עֲקֵדָה (Akedah, The Binding of Isaac) in Jewish Biblical Interpretation with Jewish Tour Guides in the Vatican Museums Post Covid-19 “for my colleagues based on my Akedah paper for my history of Jewish Biblical Interpretation class . I now look forward to your lecture on the Akedah !!!!
