Kerem Shalom of Concord is delighted to have Steve Whitfield back again as a featured speaker for our learning series. Professor Whitfield’s talk will focus on a timely and illuminating film—”Oppenheimer.” Christopher Nolan’s 2023 biopic of “the father of the atomic bomb” raises the most harrowing questions about the formation of scientific genius and the exercise of military power. What the movie could not cover in its more than three hours, or could not treat adequately or clearly—from the Jewish dimension to the perils of the Cold War—will be the subject of this presentation.
Professor Whitfield taught American studies at Brandeis University from 1972-2017 and is now Brandeis Professor Emeritus. He has won a number of major teaching awards and is the author of 10 books on 20th-century American history and on American Jewish history. Over the years, he has shared his insights on many topics with KS members, including politics, culture, music and Jewish history.
