Scholar in Residence

October 29, 2017 @ 9:15 am - 11:30 am

Rabbi Gary Zola will be joining Temple Beth Israel for a Scholar in Residence Weekend.

 

GREAT VOICES, CIVIL RIGHTS,
AND JEWS IN AMERICA
SUNDAY MORNING OCT. 29, 2017
AT TEMPLE BETH ISRAEL
9:15 am BREAKFAST, 10:00 am PROGRAM
Have you ever wondered how some of the leading American rabbis handled pivotal world events from the pulpit? What did American rabbis tell their congregants about topics such as the rise of Adolph Hitler, the outbreak of World War II, the struggle for Civil Rights in
the 1950s and 1960s, and so forth? Dr. Zola, will introduce us to some of Judaism’s most remarkable rabbinical leaders. This will be a rare opportunity for you to actually hear a series of remarkable vocal recordings (digitized with visuals added) of several towering rabbinic voices, all of which come from the AJA’s extraordinary historical collection. This will be your opportunity to listen to sermonic voices that you may know by reputation – but have never
actually heard.
