14th Auerbach Memorial Lecture

The 14th Annual Franz Auerbach Interfaith Memorial Lecture will be held this Tuesday, 30 October 2018 at 19h00 for 19h30 in the Slome Auditorium. This year we feature as our guest popular speaker Irwin Manoim, former Chair of Beit Emanuel and co-founder of the Weekly Mail and Mail & Guardian. His topic, ‘What happened to our courage to debate?’ will cover how, in the Jewish community, we pride ourselves on our ability to wrestle intellectually with difficult issues, a tradition stretching back to the Talmudic sages. It’s an outlook that requires some moral courage. Have we lost that courage?

Light refreshments will be served after the lecture.

Admission is free, donations always welcome. To facilitate logistics, please confirm your attendance with the Shul Office on email address [email protected]
