8:00 p.m.
Guest Speaker: Rabbi Henry Shreibman '74

Topic: Navigating your Jewishness: Dickinson and beyond…
Description: As the Jewish experience in America continues to unfold over the last several centuries it is becoming clear that we all are Jews by choice.

From Columbus through to Sanders - there are several clear trends and approaches to Jewish identity which have emerged. This conversation will explore the sociological and demographic realities of Jewish life in America, the individual kinds of journeys we take and the spiritual / emotional passions we pursue.

He earned a Ph.D., M.Phil and M.A. from Columbia University, NY in comparative ancient religions and literatures. He is an ordained Rabbi since 1981 from the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, Phila.
