Rabbi Al Axelrad: From Brooklyn to Brandeis – and After

Hosted By: Brandeis Hillel

Join Brandeis Hillel for a conversation with Rabbi Albert Axelrad and Professor Stephen Whitfield, Max Richter Professor of American Civilization, Emeritus, at Brandeis University.

He was known for his political activism surrounding the war in Vietnam and Civil Rights. Under his leadership, Brandeis became a center of activity in the Soviet Jewry movement.

Stephen Whitfield is the Max Richter Professor of American Civilization at Brandeis. He earned his PhD here in 1972 and is the author of eight books, including Learning on the Left: Political Profiles of Brandeis University. He’s been a visiting professor at Hebrew University, the Sorbonne and the University of Munich.
