Yakir Englander, an expert on the interface between Jewish philosophy, Jewish law, and gender studies, will present a new interpretation of the concept of traditional Jewish martyrdom, Kiddush Hashem (Sanctification of the Name of God). He will illuminate the different responses to the Holocaust by men and women, and by Hasidim and Lithuanians. This lecture is free and open to the public.
