We are pleased to announce that we have engaged Rabbi Dr. Gil S. Perl to present this year’s lecture.
Gil Perl is the Dean of the Margolin Hebrew Academy / Feinstone Yeshiva of the South, a Prek-12 day school serving the Jewish community of Memphis. Before arriving in Memphis, Dr. Perl served as an instructor of Modern Jewish History in Yeshiva University and as the Associate Head of School in Yeshiva University’s High School for Boys. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Pennsylvania, his Masters and Doctorate in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations from Harvard University, and rabbinical ordination from Yeshiva University. As a Teaching Fellow at Harvard, Rabbi Perl was twice awarded Harvard’s prestigious Certificate of Distinction in Teaching and in the Spring of 2006 he was named Yeshiva University’s Lillian F. and William L. Silber Professor of the Year.
The title of Rabbi Perl’s lecture is: “What Was the Rosh Yeshiva Reading? Intellectual Openness in 19th Century Lithuania.”
We look forward to seeing all our Seraphic Friends and relatives at the lecture.
Learning Torah was Ariel’s greatest joy. There is no better way of honoring Ariel’s memory than by participating in this lecture series.
May Ariel’s neshama have an aliyah.
You do not have to RSVP to attend. The lecture and brunch are courtesy of the Avrech Family and Friends.
