Professor Kalir Presents to Congregation B’nai Jeshurun

Professor Doron Kalir presented at Congregation B’nai Jeshurun on Rosh Ha’Shana (Jewish New Year). The presentation compared two models of a famous story: delivering a first-born to God. First, it discussed the male version – the Binding of Isaac by Abraham, as told in the Book of Genesis. Then, it discussed the female version – the story of Chana, mother of Samuel, who has given him back to the Holy Priest shortly after he was born (Sam. I).
