2023 Ben J. Altheimer Lecture on Judaism and Civil Rights
February 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm CSTFree
Dr. Geoffrey P. Levin will explore the reality that for centuries, being Jewish automatically meant being a minority, but with Israel’s birth, that suddenly changed. After 1948, Israel’s control over a Palestinian minority led American Jews to grapple with new dilemmas.
The event is hosted by Hendrix College’s Marshall T. Steel Center for Religion and Philosophy. A reception will follow. Levin’s appearance is supported by the Ben J. Altheimer Charitable Foundation, which sponsors the Altheimer Lectures. The bi-annual lecture is intended to highlight the role of Jews and/or Judaism in the pursuit of civil rights.
