Professor Kalir Presents at Tikkun Leil Sha’vu’out

On Jan. 8, Clinical Professor of Law Doron Kalir presented at Congregation B’nai Jeshurun’s Tikkun Leil Sha’vu’out. The event, which is community-wide, attracts hundreds for a night of text and Torah Study with Rabbis, theologians, academics, and other thought leaders. Professor Kalir’s presentation this year was titled, “Following Netflix’s Come Sunday: What is Judaism All About?” The presentation explored the rise and fall of Bishop Carlton Pearson as reflected by the bioepic “Come Sunday,” only to return to Judaism and ask what lessons, if any, are relevant from this story to ours. This was Professor Kalir’s fourth annual presentation at this event.
