Genius and the Story of the Jews

Categories

The extraordinary resilience of the Jewish people—in the face of adversity through every generation since Moses—gives power and resonance to their collective vision, and provides the key to Jewish identity and sense of purpose.

Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, Emeritus Chief Rabbi of Britain and the Commonwealth and current professor at New York University, Yeshiva University and King’s College London and Simon Schama, author of The Story of the Jews, dig deep into Jewish history to explore and explain the genius of Jewish survival, resilience, security, prosperity and leadership. The conversation was moderated by US television journalist, David Gregory.

This event took place in New York as part of 92nd St Y’s ‘7 Days of Genius’ festival.
