On-Site Program: Real and Imaginary: A Conversation About Spiritual Resistance

Join Sid. Z. Leiman, PhD, internationally acclaimed scholar of Jewish history and literature, at Illinois Holocaust Museum for a candid conversation about spiritual resistance during the Holocaust.

Hosted by Rabbi Reuven Brand, Dean of the Midwest Center for Jewish Learning, Dr. Leiman will explore well-known and unexplored extraordinary episodes, separating fact from fiction and appreciating timeless lessons of faith, courage, and humanity.
