The Genius of Yosef Yerushalmi

Hosted By: Streicker Center Temple Emanu-El NYC

During his long career, Dr. Yerushalmi plumbed an eclectic assortment of Jewish subjects, from the Spanish expulsion to Freud’s relationship with his religion. But Jewish memory was his signature concern as he wrestled with the question as to whether scholarship alone could nurture a living culture.

Upon the publication of Transmitting Jewish History, based on conversations with Dr. Yerushalmi, The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center is honored to welcome its author, Sylvie Anne Goldberg, to discuss his personal and intellectual journey and the mark he’s left on Jewish scholarship and thought.
