A Provocative People: A Secular History of the Jews by Rabbi Sherwin T. Wine (1928-2007), the founder of Humanistic Judaism, is the culmination of a lifetime of study and insight by one of the most provocative rabbis in Jewish history. It celebrates the contemporary secularized reality of most Jews as the culmination of, not a rupture with, the Jewish historical experience. Rabbi Adam Chalom, editor of Wine’s magnum opus and his successor as dean for North America of the International Institute of Secular Humanistic Judaism, will explore the importance of this new history for the present and future of the Jewish people.
Co-sponsored with the International Institute for Secular Humanistic Judaism.
Rabbi Adam Chalom, Dean, North America section of the International Institute was ordained by the International Institute for Secular Humanistic Judaism in 2001, and received his PhD in Near Eastern Studies – Hebrew and Jewish Cultural Studies concentration from the University of Michigan. In addition to his work with the Institute, Rabbi Chalom is the rabbi of Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation in north suburban Chicago, Illinois.
