Congregation Shearith Israel is pleased to welcome Rabbi Shai Held, one of the most influential Jewish thinkers and leaders in America, to speak on his new book, Judaism is About Love. Rabbi Held received the prestigious Covenant Award for Excellence in Jewish Education, and has been named multiple times to Newsweek’s list of the most influential rabbis in America and to the Forward’s list of the most prominent Jews in the world. He is the author of Abraham Joshua Heschel: The Call of Transcendence (2013) and The Heart of Torah: Essays on the Weekly Torah Portion (2017).
