The narrative of revelation at Mount Sinai is immediately followed by the catastrophic episode of the Golden Calf. Dr. Zornberg will explore Moses’ role in this episode and answer the question: Why does his face radiate light at the end of the narrative?

Avivah Gottlieb Zornberg lives in Jerusalem, where she has been lecturing on Torah since 1980. Born in London, she grew up in Glasgow, studying Torah with her father, who was a rabbi and head of the Rabbinical Court. Dr. Zornberg holds a PhD in English Literature from Cambridge University and has taught English literature at Hebrew University. Zornberg reads biblical narratives through the prism of midrash, literature, philosophy, and psychoanalysis. She is the author of five critically acclaimed books; her most recent, «Moses: A Human Life,» was published by Yale University Press.

A reception and book signing will follow the talk.
This event is in memory of Marsha Rivkind Raleigh z''l.

Co-sponsored by the Jewish Community High School of the Bay.
