Bildner Visiting Scholar Dr. Yakir Englander will deliver two public lectures at Rutgers University.
On Feb. 28, his talk “Post-Holocaust Ultra-Orthodox Theology: A New Perspective” will throw new light on responses to the Holocaust within the ultra-Orthodox community, with a focus on the differences in reaction between men and women and between Hasidic and Lithuanian communities.
On March 8, he will present his second lecture, “Religious Zionism, the Media, and the Changing Role of the Rabbi,” in which he will address how advances in technology have had an impact on the role of the rabbi.
Both programs will be held at 7:30 p.m. at the Douglass Student Center, 100 George Street, New Brunswick. Sponsored by the Allen and Joan Bildner Center for the Study of Jewish Life, the lectures are free and open to the public.
Free parking is available behind the Student Center; use 57 Lipman Drive for navigation systems.
