What do Jew­ish respons­es to the cra­zi­est year in recent mem­o­ry look like? Scrip­tions offers a real-time snap­shot of how we have grap­pled with the extra­or­di­nary chal­lenges of recent months through essays penned by HUC fac­ul­ty across the full scope of Jew­ish stud­ies. Join Dr. Leah Hochman and Rab­bi Michael Mar­mur as they dis­cuss the moti­va­tion for this project and share insights and excerpts that will enlight­en and inspire.
