Scholar-in-Residence

Each year Temple Emanu-El features exciting voices from different areas of Jewish thought who have given presentations about a variety of compelling topics. The program is generously underwritten by the Peck Scholar Fund and temple members Arny and Dee Kaplan. We are especially grateful to temple members Larry and Wendy Barnet who have chaired our S-I-R program for many years.

In 2019 our Scholar-in-Residence was Dr. Norman Cohen presented two programs:

The Power to Confront Evil: Moses Learns to Raise his Voice and

Miriam and Moses: The Female and Male Voice

Dr. Cohen is a professor emeritus of the Hebrew Union College, having served many years as provost. He is a popular and lively lecturer, focusing on modern interpretation of the Bible. 

Look for exciting news on the 2020 Scholar-in-Residence program in the months to come.
