JLL Sunday Salon With Bob Schwartz: How to Make a Golem
November 24 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The golem is one of the most enduring and mysterious myths in Jewish history. The ability to bring a man of clay to life, by means of holy letters and names, has fascinated and sometimes tempted mystical scholars for centuries. This is an overview of the history and mystique of the golem, including how it has found its way into popular culture—most famously in the novel Frankenstein. Clips from the celebrated 1920 German film Der Golem by Paul Wegener will be shown, but no golems will be made or brought to life—at least not here.
Bob Schwartz is chair of the Temple Emanu-El Jewish Lifelong Learning committee.
