3:00pm [3:00pm] Nathan E. Cohen Lecture Series-The Legend of the Thirty-Six: Jews, Righteousness
Description:
The Nathan E. Cohen Lecture Series Presents The Legend of the Thirty-Six: Jews, Righteousness, and the Fate of the World With Celia Rabinowitz, Dean of the Mason Library at Keene State College February 3, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. *at Congregation Ahavas Achim* There are many stories about the lamed vavnikim, the 36 righteous men whose existence in each generation prevents the world’s destruction. Ideas about the power of righteous individuals to protect us from the worst in our nature appear in the Torah and throughout Jewish scripture, law, and folklore. What role do these stories play in the ways we think of ourselves as Jews and as human beings? How might the legend of the lamed vavniks influence our beliefs and actions today? Dr. Rabinowitz will consider these questions and more in this edifying talk. Nathan E. Cohen lectures are free and open to the public. There is a reception afterwards with refreshments and a chance for socializing. This lecture is presented in coordination with The Cohen Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies as one of their “36 and Counting” programs to mark the Cohen Center’s 36th anniversary.
