Lunch and Learn: The Legendary Golem
April 21 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Kiddush that follows the Saturday morning service on April 21 will be the occasion for a lunch-and-learn session with Professor Charles T. Rubin of Duquesne University. The topic will be the golem: the legendary humanoid created by Rabbi Judah Loew ben Bezalel (a.k.a. The Maharal; d. 1609) to defend the Jews of Prague. The Saturday morning service begins at 9:15, and the Kiddush that follows (free of charge) usually begins around noon.
