ELI Talks

ELI talks are highly produced, 12-minute presentations on "inspired Jewish ideas." The talks explore the central themes of Jewish literacy, religious engagement and identity, presented in light of their presenter’s own work, personal experiences, or Jewish or secular texts. The speakers’ passions result in engaging and inspired talks that teach something new or perhaps counterintuitive.
