[This Program is scheduled on Eastern Time Zone]

 

PASSION AND VIOLENCE: A CONTEMPORARY, PHILOSOPHICAL READING OF THE SACRIFICE OF ISAAC 

Part of our summer learning series: Stories and Storytelling

Monday, July 18, 2022, 1:00-2:30 p.m. ET
Online

The Sacrifice of Isaac is a paradigmatic episode in Jewish philosophy, ethics, and interpretation. But new ideas in modern and postmodern philosophy call us to re-read this narrative, and change the ways we have often read the story. We will re-tell this story according to an “old-new” method, amalgamating historical and emblematic ways of viewing the story, but also bringing new ideas to the fore, especially around the ideas of passion and holiness in Jewish thought. Dr. Kaye will propose important suggestions for reading the Sacrifice of Isaac in our contemporary world. 

With Dr. Miriam Feldmann Kaye, Visiting Assistant Professor
