Vanderbilt University’s Program in Jewish Studies invites you to join us for an evening of learning with a distinguished panel of scholars convened by The Center for Global Judaism at Hebrew College.
Jewish thinkers throughout the ages have held very different views of God. Is the Divine all-powerful and all-knowing? What about evil? Can human actions impact God? From the Hebrew Bible to Maimonides to Abraham Joshua Heschel these questions have been answered in a variety of ways.
Join us as a distinguished panel of scholars reflects on the presentations of God in Jewish sources, ancient, medieval, and modern.
Presenters will include:
Dr. Rachel Adelman, Hebrew College
Dr. Daniel Rynhold, Yeshiva University
Dr. Sharon Korn, Hebrew Union College
Dr. Claire Sufrin, Northwestern University
Moderator, Rabbi Or Rose, Center for Global Judaism, Hebrew College
Respondent, Prof. Phil Lieberman, Vanderbilt University
