Annual Dr. Eddie Scharfman Memorial Lecture
Wednesday January 10th, 2018 - 7:30 - 9:00 PM
190 Amsterdam Ave, New York, NY 10023
Presented by R. Elie Kaunfer
In this lecture by R. Elie Kaunfer, we will open up the second blessing of the Amidah – said in all formal Jewish prayer services – to explore different possibilities of meaning. Which biblical and midrashic texts stand behind this blessing, and how can they open up our field of vision around this controversial prayer.
Dr. Scharfman was committed to learning and Torah and we are honored to be able to hold this lecture in his memory. Thank you to the Scharfman Family for their support in making this lecture possible.
