7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Call Me Ishmael
Call Me Irresponsible
They Call Me Mr. Tibbs
Don’t Call Me Baby
You Can Call Me Al

What does your name mean to you?  Do you have a nickname?  What names have other people called you?  How and why did you decide upon your childrens’ names?  Just as the poet Zelda wrote the Hebrew poem “Each Of Us Has A Name,” Professor Eliezer Diamond of JTS will discuss The Power of Words, focusing on the Power of Names.  Susan Piskiel Blackburn will introduce the program and moderate the discussion afterwards.

Note:  You may register to attend either in-person or on Zoom. Those who attend in person will all watch the recorded lecture together starting at 7:00pm, and then participate in discussion. Those who attend on Zoom will receive the link to the recorded lecture a day or two in advance and have the option of watching it either ahead of time or in real time, and then watch/participate in the lecture on Zoom.


Please note, those who would like to participate via Zoom will watch the lecture on their own and then join us for discussion at approximately 8:15pm.  You will receive information and Zoom link prior to the session.
