Lunch and Learn with Shalom Sabar
Thursday, October 1, 2015, 12:30 pm PDT - 2:30 pm PDT
The biblical story of the Binding or Sacrifice of Isaac plays a major role in the religious ideologies of the three monotheistic religions. Over the ages, artists in the service of Jewish, Christian and Muslim communities were called to depict the story time and again. Join Prof. Shalom Sabar as he examines how these visual works convey the messages and sentiments of traditional societies that produced them, as well as the curious, military-related twist the visual interpretation of the story took in modern times, especially in the State of Israel.
A light Kosher lunch will be provided. RSVP required.
