Minyan 2019 Shabbaton

 In Uncategorized

On January 25 and 26, 2019, Mah Tovu Ezra Habonim Egalitarian Minyan of Rogers Park will host our annual Shabbaton with guest speaker Benjamin Sommer. Professor Sommer, a former Egalitarian Minyan member, is Professor of Bible at the Jewish Theological Seminary. 

His book, Revelation and Authority: Sinai in Jewish Scripture and Tradition, received the Goldstein-Goren Prize in Jewish thought and was a finalist for a National Jewish Book Award. The Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz described Sommer as “a traditionalist and yet an iconoclast – he shatters idols and prejudices in order to nurture Jewish tradition and its applicability today.”
