Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, Kressel and Ephrat Family Professor of Jewish Thought, was the featured speaker at a special Abraham and Millie Arbesfeld Kollel and Midreshet Yom Rishon event hosted by Yeshiva University’s Center for the Jewish Future on 17th April 2016. The lecture took place on YU’s Wilf Campus.

Titled “Judaism’s Unique Concept of Freedom,” Rabbi Sacks’ remarks explored the Jewish Sages’ revolutionary approach to liberty, and the profound implications their insights have for the 21st century.

“Pesach is a holiday that inspires both personal and national reflection regarding the history and destiny of the Jewish people,” said Rabbi Yaakov Glasser, the David Mitzner Dean of the CJF. “Rabbi Sacks is one of the most thoughtful and eloquent teachers of our generation. We are confident that his presentation will inspire both the students and community of Yeshiva University.”

The event was free and open to the public, generously sponsored by Robyn and Shukie Grossman and family.
