People of the Word: Fifty Words That Shaped Jewish Thinking

Hosted By: American Jewish University

A growing body of research suggests that language does more than communicate our perception of reality; it creates it. As Charlemagne famously said, “To have a second language is to have a second soul.” The patterns, structures, and particular words used in each language not only offer a window into a culture’s sensibilities, dispositions, and priorities, but help shape them as well. Learn from Rabbis Zalman Abraham and Mendel Kalmenson as they discuss with AJU’s Rabbi Pinchas Giller how Hebrew can bring insight into Jewish history, thought, culture, meaning, and practice.
