11/30/16 – Road Show Presentation at Congregation Rodeph Sholom in Bridgeport

Light_of_HanukkahOn November 30th at 7:00 PM, Professor Stuart Miller will present a “Road Show” lecture entitled “The Real Miracle of Hanukkah: Why Everyone’s Favorite Minor Festival Should be Considered a Major One” at Congregation Rodeph Sholom in Bridgeport, CT.
The historical events leading to the first celebration of Hanukkah were a turning point in the history of Judaism that forever changed the trajectory of Jewish existence.
This lecture will make the case that the meaning of Hanukkah has been trivialized and that a better appreciation of the festival’s history can lead to a more meaningful spiritual experience and celebration.
