Renard Lecture: A Strange Textual Survey of American Judaism

Did you know that prior to the civil war many American rabbis supported slavery? Did you know that a Rabbi and his congregant were involved in a gunfight in the Wild West? Did you know that at the turn of the 20th century established uptown Jews hired a detective to provide them with a detailed list of Jewish criminals in the Lower East Side? Using source documents Mr. Aviezer will discuss these rarely mentioned events in the history of Judaism in America.

Ze’ev Aviezer is an Adult Jewish Educator from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. He teaches adult education courses for Scarsdale Adult School, Larchmont Mamaroneck Continuing Education, and at Mid-Westchester JCC, Greenwich JCC, Beth El Synagogue, Larchmont Temple and for WAJE (Westchester Adult Jewish Education).

PLEASE NOTE: Doors Open at 9:30 am
