Event Details

Part of the Program for Jewish Civilization's Spring 2014 Lecture Series.

Mordecai M. Kaplan (1881-1983) is widely acknowledged as one of the most significant Jewish thinkers of the last century. In this talk, Dr. Caplan will discuss aspects of Kaplan's work that have much to contribute to contemporary Jewish life, including his approach to Jewish education, socio-economic challenges, and Jewish ritual. The lecture will draw heavily from Kaplan's lesser known writings, including his unpublished diaries.

Dr. Eric Caplan is the author of From Ideology to Liturgy: Reconstructionist Worship and American Liberal Judaism, published by Hebrew Union College Press in 2002. Dr. Caplan is the Director of McGill University's Jewish Teacher Training Program, Chair of its Department of Jewish Studies, and an associate professor in its Faculties of Arts and Education. He is vice-president of the Mordecai M. Kaplan Center for Jewish Peoplehood.  

A light reception will precede the event. RSVP is requested.
