3 Images - Vilna Gaon

On Thursday, February 19, Dr. Raphael Shuchat will be giving a guest lecture, exploring the recurrent debate over the true image of the Vilna Gaon. 7pm in Furst Hall – Room 535. RSVP here.

Sponsored parking is available in the YU lot (E) on Amsterdam Avenue and West 183rd Street.

Dr. Shuchat teaches Jewish philosophy and thought at Bar-Ilan University. His research focuses on the thought of the Vilna Gaon and his followers, and the inter-relation between Judaism and science. He has published three books: The Vilna Gaon and His Beit Midrash (together with M. Hallamish and Y. Rivlin; Ramat Gan 2003), A World Hidden in Time: Redemption in the Writings of the Vilna Gaon (Ramat Gan 2008), which received the Ministry of Education’s prize for Judaic research, and Jewish Faith in a Changing World (Boston 2012). His fourth book, Studies in Lithuanian Kabbalah: from the Vilna Gaon to Rav Kook (with M. Hallamish), will be published this year by Bar-Ilan University.
