Unsolicited Advice: What Role did Yitro play in Revelation?

Hosted By: London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS)

Pre-Shavuot lecture with the Rabbi Sacks Chair of Modern Jewish Thought, established by the Zandan family
Why does the father-in-law of Moses suddenly appear and start telling him what do to? What was Jethro’s cultural background and how did this non-Israelite impact on the giving of the Torah? In this special pre-Shavuot lecture you will learn how this itinerant priest, believer, advisor and wanderer came to frame the Revelation at Mount Sinai. This will lead to a new perspective as to the nature and purpose of Torah in our lives.
