On Tuesday May 30, Professor Doron Kalir presented at Tikkun Leil Sha’vu’ot, a community-wide event hosted by Bnei Jeshurun Congregation. Over 300 guests enjoyed a variety of lectures offered by Halachic, legal, medical, and social experts on a wide array of issues, in a night dedicated by the Jewish calendar to text study, review, and reflection. Professor Kalir‘s presentation was entitled: “Be’re’shit Ba’ra Elo’him: What Really Happened ‘In the Beginning'”? It focused on the philosophical, theological, and textual implications of the first three words in the Jewish Bible. It was Professor Kalir‘s fifth presentation at this annual community event.
