Jewish Heretics from Elisha Ben Abuyah to Rabbi Sherwin Wine

Jews who challenged the authority of the rabbis and the sanctity of scriptures while insisting on their right to remain Jewish. People to consider: Kalonymous ben Kalonymous, Baruch Spinoza, Ernestine Rose, Emma Lazarus, Theodore Herzl, Sigmund Freud and Albert Einstein.

Presented by Bennett Muraskin, a familiar speaker to City Congregation, who has spoken widely on Jewish topics. He is a regular columnist for Jewish Currents and Outlook magazines and has written three books: Humanist Readings in Jewish Folklore (2001), Let Justice Well Up Like Water: Progressive Jews from Hillel to Helen Suzman (2005) and The Association of Jewish Libraries Guide to Yiddish Short Stories (2011). He works as a union representative for state college/university faculty, librarians and professional staff in NJ.
