Join Brandeis Hillel for a conversation with Rabbi Al Axelrad and professor Stephen Whitfield. Rabbi Axelrad mentored and inspired thousands of students during his 34 years as the Jewish chaplain and executive director of Hillel (1964-1999). He was known for his political activism surrounding the war in Vietnam and civil rights. Under his leadership, Brandeis became a center of activity in the Soviet Jewry movement.

Whitfield is the Max Richter Professor of American Civilization at Brandeis. He earned his Ph.D. here in 1972 and is the author of eight books, including “Learning on the Left: Political Profiles of Brandeis University.” He’s been a visiting professor at Hebrew University, the Sorbonne and the University of Munich.
