The Yerushah Lecture

The annual Yerushah Lecture in the Faculty of Divinity was established with a benefaction from the Righteous Persons Foundation, created by Steven Spielberg from the proceeds of his 1993 film Schindler’s List. “Yerushah” is the Hebrew word for “heritage”. The Yerushah Lecture is devoted to Jewish heritage in all its aspects, with an emphasis on the transmission of Jewish identity and values across the generations.

The 2014-15 Yerushah lecture was given by Leon Rosselson on the theme of ‘That Precious Strand of Jewishness That Challenges Authority’. It can be listened to online here.
