The Mossad Messiah: A novel that imagines tomorrow's Israel
Join the Azrieli Institute of Israel Studies featuring Rabbi Leigh Lerner for an illustrated introduction to Israeli ultra-Orthodoxy. How did the ultra-Orthodox arise as a power in Israel? What are its goals? Who leads its groups? In explaining ultra-Orthodoxy, Rabbi Lerner will also share why he wrote The Mossad Messiah: A novel of Israel and briefly give insight into the novel, which will be available for purchase.
Rabbi Lerner is Rabbi Emeritus of Temple Emanu-El-Beth Sholom, Montreal. For the last five years he is also visiting rabbi in Italy at Shir Hadash Firenze and teacher of conversion classes at Beth Hillel Roma. He and his wife, Professor Loren Lerner, visit Israel annually.
Refreshments will be served. For further details, please see the event flyer.
