"The Struggle for the Old Testament in Nazi Germany: The Untold Story of Gerhard von Rad"

Bernard Levinson, Berman Family Chair in Jewish Studies and Hebrew Bible and Professor of Classical and Near Eastern Studies and of Law at the University of Minnesota, will be giving a special lecture at Or Emet: Minnesota Congregation for Humanistic Judaism on Friday, April 27, 2012. Levinson will discuss the moving story of Gerhard von Rad's heroic struggles to defend the Old Testament in Nazi Germany and how he fought this battle in near isolation, long before he became a famous Protestant theologian.

The lecture will begin after Or Emet's 7:30 pm Humanistic Sabbath service and will be followed by an Oneg Shabbat reception. The event will be held at Minneapolis Sabes Jewish Community Center, 4330 Cedar Lake Rd. S., St. Louis Park, and is free and open to the public.
