Jewish Literary Foundation presents Book Week 24

Speaker Raphael Zarum
Chair Devorah Baum

In Questioning Belief: Torah and Tradition in an Age of Doubt, runner-up in this year’s Yeshiva University’s Rabbi Sacks Book Prize, Zarum presents thorough, reasoned responses, based on Torah and tradition, to some of Judaism’s most challenging questions of belief, science and ethics.

The Dean of the London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS), where he holds the Rabbi Sacks Chair of Modern Jewish Thought, joins Devorah Baum, author of Feeling Jewish, in conversation.
