Park Avenue Synagogue Presents The Book Launch of The Prophet's Wife

Sunday, March 21, 2010, 4:00 p.m.

Park Avenue Synagogue presents the book launch of The Prophet's Wife on the occasion of the sixtieth yahrzeit of Rabbi Milton Steinberg (z"l).

The Prophet's Wife—the unfinished novel of Milton Steinberg, author of As a Driven Leaf—is a stirring portrait of the prophet Hosea, his free-spirited wife Gomer, and a people seduced by power and idolatry to betray their faith.

Enjoy a symposium with:

Rabbi Harold Kushner, keynote speaker on "The Enduring Legacy of Milton Steinberg (z"l)"

  • Rabbi Dan Ehrenkrantz, Reconstructionist Rabbinical College
    "Milton Steinberg: Critic and Model"
  • Professor Arnold M. Eisen, Chancellor of The Jewish Theological Seminary
    "Milton Steinberg and the Dilemmas Facing American Judaism"
  • Dr. Adriane Leveen, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion
    "Milton Steinberg's Literary Imagination and The Prophet's Wife"
  • Rabbi Dr. Jacob L. Schacter, Yeshiva University
    "Personal Reflections on As a Driven Leaf: Then and Now"

Copies of The Prophet's Wife will be available for purchase at a reception following the symposium.

This event is cosponsored by The Jewish Week.

Additional programming going on during Shabbat, March 19–20.
