Beth Ami's brief Havdalah presentation will include readings from Dr. Malkin and share insights on his life from his daughter, Rabbi Sivan Maas of Israel.
Saturday Jan. 29 at 6 pm MT
Who is Dr Malkin and why should I care? I hear you ask.
The Society for Humanistic Judaism (SHJ) has chosen Yaakov Malkin (1926–2019) as the most recent Humanistic Jewish Role Model. Professor Malkin worked closely with Rabbi Sherwin Wine in the creation and international development of Humanistic Judaism in Israel and N. America.
Yaakov Malkin was the provost of Tmura, the International Institute for Secular Humanistic Judaism based in Jerusalem. He was an educator, writer, literary critic, and professor emeritus in the Faculty of Arts at Tel Aviv University. Professor Malkin taught comparative literature, aesthetics, theater, and film criticism, and co-founded the Department for Cinema and Television at Tel Aviv University. He was a founder of the Jewish Center movement in Israel. He also founded and directed two Jewish-Arab community centers in Haifa, the first of their kind, and published several texts on community, education, and public speaking.
