Jews have been writing commentary on the Bible for literally thousands of years, and it can sometimes seem like “there is nothing new under the sun.” And yet Held’s “The Heart of Torah” is new and strikingly original.

Rabbi Held will be in discussion with Rabbi Gardenswartz featuring his recently published book “The Heart of Torah: Essays on the Weekly Torah Portion.”

A reception with book sale and signing follows. Rabbi Shai Held, theologian, scholar, and educator, is president, dean and chair in Jewish thought at Mechon Hadar, where he also directs the Center for Jewish Leadership and Ideas. Rabbi Held has been named multiple times to Newsweek’s list of the 50 most influential rabbis in America.
