The Aaron Roland Endowed Lectures are supported by the Aaron-Roland Fund For Jewish Studies which was established in 1969 and is our longest running lecture series. In 2016-17, we welcomed back Judith Plaskow, 25 years after she was the Aaron Roland lecturer in 1992. Here are a few of our most recent Aaron Roland lectures:
