Rabbi Danny Schiff, PhD: “Eleven Months After Pittsburgh: What Did We Learn?”

Sept. 18 Lecture Presented by Fairfield University’s Bennett Center for Judaic Studies

Fairfield University’s Bennett Center for Judaic Studies will present Rabbi Danny Schiff, PhD, on Wednesday, September 18, 2019, to deliver the lecture “Eleven Months after Pittsburgh: What Did We Learn?” at 7:30 p.m. in the Aloysius P. Kelley, S.J., Center Presentation Room.

In October 2018, Pittsburgh’s Jewish community suffered the worst anti-Semitic attack in U.S. history. Reflecting on the lessons learned, Rabbi Schiff will address how the events of that day impacted Pittsburgh, and the abiding implications for American Jewry.

Rabbi Schiff is the foundation scholar at the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh, and the founder and president of the Museum of Jewish Ideas. A noted teacher and researcher in Jewish ethics, he is the 2019-20 Judaic Studies scholar-in-residence at Fairfield University.

Prior to his position at Fairfield, Rabbi Schiff served as the community scholar for the Agency for Jewish Learning in Pittsburgh, as rabbi of B’nai Israel in White Oak, Pa., and as rabbi at Temple Beth Israel in Melbourne, Australia. He is the author of Abortion in Judaism, published by Cambridge University Press, and he has written a substantial number of articles, particularly in the field of Jewish law and ethics. Rabbi Schiff is a former board member of the City of Pittsburgh Ethics Board and of the Society of Jewish Ethics.
