Sunday-Morning Program: Jewish Heretics
April 22, 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
(a presentaton by Bennett Muraskin)
Bennett has been presenting terrific talks at our Sunday morning programs for many years.
Jewish Heretics from Elisha Ben Abuyah to Sherwin Wine— Jews who challenged the authority of the rabbis and the sanctity of scriptures while insisting on their right to remain Jewish. From Abraham and Moses arguing with God in the Torah, to Albert Einstein and Sigmund Freud, this tradition has been part and parcel of Jewish life. Secular Jews, in particular, will learn about “heroes” from Jewish history they can be proud of.
