Prof. Paul Glassman’s Honors course Architecture of the Synagogue welcomed a guest lecturer on November 3rd, and all Honors students were invited to join.  Architect Esther Sperber came in to give a talk on “A Design Proposal for the Kesher Synagogue in Englewood, New Jersey.” Esther Sperber has been writing and lecturing on architecture and psychoanalysis, two fields of praxis that strive to reduce human distress and widen the range of human experiences. Born and raised in Jerusalem, Israel, she studied architecture at the Technion in Haifa and Columbia University in New York.

For those who are interested in hearing the talk and were unable to attend the lecture, you may now view the video at this link.
