Shabbat at the Altneu; Jews in World War I; Lecture with Rabbi Ya’akov Trump

Three Reflections on the Meaning of Judaea Capta in Jewish History

Honored to be meeting the unique congregation I’ve heard so much about, led by Rabbi Benjamin Goldschmidt and Rebbitzen Avital Chizik-Goldschmidt. I plan to offer three lectures on aspects of captivity in Jewish history, looking at the very different biographies of Josephus, Rabbi Kalonymus Kalmish Shapiro, and Uriel D’Acosta. RSVP is required, please visit for details.
