Speaker to Discuss Role of Scripture and Liturgy in Holocaust

As part of the Holocaust Lecture Series sponsored by the Kripke Center for the Study of Religion and Society at Creighton University, Steven Kepnes, Ph.D., will present “Scripture and Liturgical Responses to the Holocaust” at 7:00 p.m. Monday, April 7, in Creighton’s Skutt Student Center Ballroom East.

This event is free and open to the public.

Kepnes, the William Finard Chair of Jewish Studies at Colgate University, is the author of many books including: “Liturgical Reasoning”; “Scripture, Reason, and Islam-West Encounter”; and “Reason After Revelation: Dialogues in Postmodern Jewish Philosophy.” He is currently working on a book on the Signs of Prophecy.

The Kripke Center’s Holocaust course and lecture series are made possible in part through the generous support of the National Holocaust Endowment, with special thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Sam Freed. The lecture is co-sponsored by Creighton College of Arts & Sciences and the Klutznick Chair in Jewish Civilization.

Creighton University is a Jesuit, Catholic university bridging health, law, business and the arts and sciences for a more just world.
