Join in celebration with the Elie Wiesel Center for Jewish Studies as we honor the memory and enduring legacy of our extraordinary teacher, the Nobel Laureate and world-renowned writer Elie Wiesel, who was the Andrew W. Mellon Professor in the Humanities and University Professor (1976-2011).

Spend your morning reflecting on panel discussions led by notable scholars, religious leaders, writers, and activists, such as Reverend Cornell William Brooks and Rabbi Nehemia Polen, as they offer their thoughts on Professor Wiesel’s literary and humanitarian contributions. Rather than formal presentations, these will be a series of engaging conversations among the panelists and with the audience members, moderated by BU faculty.

The afternoon will focus on the celebration of his life and work through a series of tributes in word, image, and music offerings by the HaZamir Chamber Chorus and the Inner Strength Gospel Choir.

Free and open to the public. Advanced registration is required.
