Mount Zion Temple, 1300 Summit Ave., St. Paul

The Hebrew Bible and the Jewish tradition strongly argue that God should not be depicted in any form. At the same time, the Hebrew Bible is full of images for God. God is father, mother, and leopard, among others. The Hebrew Bible also draws on many diverse and challenging metaphors for God. Hanne Løland Levinson explores the diverse "god-language" of the Hebrew Bible and reflects on the connection between language for God and concepts of God.

The University of Minnesota Center for Jewish Studies is pleased to present its Tenth Annual Community Lecture Series, in cooperation with synagogues and other sponsoring partners across Minneapolis and St. Paul. Join us as writers, filmmakers, and scholars from varied fields address intriguing questions relevant to the Jewish experience today.

This series is made possible by a generous gift in memory of Julia K. & Harold Segall.

Events are free and open to the public. A reception follows each lecture.
