Discussing Social Justice: Its Challenges and A Book
Marc Dollinger, Ph.D. is the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Chair in Jewish Studies and Social Responsibility at San Francisco State University. Dr. Dollinger is a nationally respected American Jewish historian, a social activist, and a life-long, committed Reform Jew. He will be looking at Jewish Social Justice from a critical, yet fond, academic perspective. On Shabbat, Dr. Dollinger will speak of social justice in general. On Sunday, he will address his brand-new book on Black and Jewish relations. This Scholar-In-Residence weekend is underwritten by the Rabbi Morris Lieberman Memorial Lectureship Fund.
