The SUNY Department of Jewish Thought  invites students and community members to participate in the second “BLIND DATE WITH A JEWISH BOOK”.  One of our professors will host a “meeting” between our guests and an as yet unannounced Jewish book, in an ongoing series celebrating the age old love affair between Jews and books.  Our first blind date, held in November, was an engaging presentation by Dr. Richard Cohen discussing Life and Fate by Vassily Grossman. Come and take a second chance! Refreshments will be served.

Come join us in the Friedman Library to celebrate Professor Sergey Dolgopolski's new book! "The Other Others" puts contemporary political theory and a literary-theoretical exploration of the core text of Rabbinic Judaism, the Talmud, into both a fruitful and tensed conversation one with another. In the words of the book's catalogue description: "Denying legal and moral existence to those who do not belong to a land, while tolerating diversity of those who do stabilizes a political order—or does it? Revisiting this core problem of contemporary political theory, Other Others turns to the Talmud as an untapped resource for a conception of the political and a take on excluded others our philosophical and theological traditions have effaced."
