This month's topic is "The Enlightenment and the Jews." It is the eighth class in the 10-part series: Reclaiming Jewish History. This month we will feature a video talk by Lois Dubin, Associate Professor of Religion and Biblical Literature at Smith College. With an M.A. and Ph.D. from Harvard University Dubin specializes in post-Biblical Jewish history and thought. All the lectures in the video series are part of the International Institute of Secular Humanistic Judaism's Colloquium in 1997. Even if you missed the previous classes you can still attend this one. Admission is free and no texts are required. Each session consists of an exciting video lecture by a prominent Judaic scholar from a major university followed by a question-and-answer period.
