“Moses Mendelssohn and the Jews of the Modern Era” – with Rabbi David W. Silverman The rise of the nation-state catapulted the Jews out of the Ghetto. The rise of mercantilism, the excitement generated by new geographic discoveries, and the breakdown of the medieval synthesis of faith and reason propelled the Jews into a new era. In this new era, history became the queen of the sciences -- with interesting consequences. Five Tuesday evenings: April 9, 16, 23, 30, May 7
