Lubavitchers: What Do They Want, and Who Sent Them?

Ohev Sholom - The National Synagogue

Dates: Tuesday, March 15, 2011
Time: 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Speaker: Dr. Samuel Heilman

Samuel Heilman holds the Harold Proshansky Chair in Jewish Studies at the Graduate Center and is Distinguished Professor of Sociology at Queens College of the City University of New York.

This lecture will discuss a worldwide movement of Jewish Outreach and the Rebbe who sent them on their mission. It is a story of personal change and an effort to make sense out of history, a story of transformation and how a sect of Hasidim could make themselves and their leader into a force that could make claims about their ability to control history and Jewish destiny. For more information, please visit The Rebbe Book.
