CBI Lecture Series: Laurance Wieder - "Messiahs" (On Zoom)

Sunday, May 3, 2020 9 Iyar 5780

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Prophets, dreamers and messiahs are the great hope, and the great pretenders. True ones are rare; and even false seers, interpreters and peddlers of redemption can sound plausible in uncertain times, when disbelief couples with desire. Retelling the careers of three failed messiahs from the 17th and 18th centuries - all of them Jewish - author and CBI member Laurance Wieder explores the marriage of hope and dismay that, along with the Messiah the son of David, is born in every generation.
