JEWISH COMMUNITY FEDERATION ENDOWED LECTURE

Bob Dylan’s song-writing has been embraced as a singular voice of American culture for the last five decades, but it can also be heard as the voice of a contemporary Jewish artist wrestling with his own religious and cultural conflict.

  Ron Rosenbaum is the author of the influential Explaining Hitler: The Search for the Origins of His Evil, The Shakespeare Wars, and most recently, How the End Begins: The Road To a Nuclear World War III. His work has appeared in *The New York Times Magazine*, *The New Yorker*, *Harper's* and *The Atlantic*, and he's a columnist for Slate.com.

   He is working on a book about Dylan for the Jewish Lives series of Yale University Press and will speak about a new way of looking at Dylan's relation to Jewishness, the Holocaust and God.

Co-sponsored with the Oshman Family JCC, the Stanford Humanities Center, and the Department of Religious Studies
