Richard Wagner, T.S. Eliot, Shakespeare. Sometimes the most important or even sublime messages are delivered by highly imperfect messengers. This is the case in the Jewish tradition as well, which includes complex and flawed figures like biblical Joseph or King David. Does Judaism allow one to separate the message from the messenger? Can the handiwork of the sinner, if not the sinner him or herself, be allowed into the community?

Dr. David Kraemer, Joseph J. and Dora Abbell Librarian and Professor of Talmud and Rabbinics, will explore this troubling and very current question.

Registration accepted in advance; walk-ins welcome.

This lecture and text study is presented by The Jewish Theological Seminary, in partnership with Knesset Israel and in cooperation with the Jewish Federation of the Berkshires.
