Kehillah Neve Shalom in St. Germain en Laye hosts Rabbi Dr. Rony Klein for a day long study on the Book of Exodus
Rabbi Dr. Rony Klein paralleled two different interpretations of the book of Exodus; that of Emmanuel Levinas in a Talmudic reading entitled "The temptation of temptation" and that of French Philosoper Dr. Shmuel Trigano in his book The New Jewish Question.
Both lectures shed light on amazing episodes of well known biblical stories and illustrated how they can be read from almost opposite assumptions.
Dr. Rabbi Rony Klein holds a Ph.D. from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and a graduate of the Schechter Rabbinical School in Jerusalem, is a specialist in Jewish thought and contemporary French philosophy. He lives in Tel Aviv.
The day long study program was supported by Masorti Olami and the WZO.
