Jesus was a Jew, but he has been immortalized as the Christian messiah. Jews naturally approached Jesus with a critical eye and in response to Christian hostility developed a counter-narrative disparaging Jesus. Later, however, Jews sought to reclaim Jesus as a persecuted Jew. This is a story that most Jews and Christians know little about, but in this presentation, the entire spectrum of Jewish perspectives on Jesus will be revealed, warts and all.
Presented by Bennett Muraskin, the author of Humanist Readings in Jewish Folklore, Let Justice Well Up Like Water: Progressive Jews from Hillel to Helen Susman, The Association of Jewish Libraries Guide to Yiddish Short Stories, and other books.
Tea, coffee and light refreshments will be provided.
