Widely sought-after speaker and well-known author, Amy-Jill Levine, will begin her Greenwich Scholar-in-Residence Weekend with a special discussion on Friday, October 21 at 7:30 pm at Temple Sholom at 300 East Putnam Avenue in Greenwich.

Sponsored by The Sholom Center for Interfaith Learning and Fellowship, this program will coincide with Temple Sholom’s Annual Sukkot Dinner and address the topic “How Jews and Christians Read Scripture Differently.”

Levine is currently a Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies at the Vanderbilt University Divinity School and College of Arts and Sciences and an Affiliated Professor at the Woolf Institute: Centre for the Study of Jewish-Christian Relations at Cambridge University in the United Kingdom. Her resume includes hundreds of biblical talks to audiences across the country, as well as numerous published works, including Short Stories by Jesus, The Misunderstood Jew and The Jewish Annotated New Testament.

The cost to attend is $18 per adult, which includes the program and dinner. A separate kid-friendly meal with supervised children’s activities will also be available this evening for children under 12-years-old (the cost is $10 per child). Advance registration and payment is required by Tuesday, October 18, as Temple Sholom will NOT be able to accommodate walk-ins.
