Speakers & Scholars in Residence

Speakers & Scholars in Residence

Our Scholars in Residence bring varied perspectives on Jewish thought and contemporary issues from all over the world and all areas of expertise.  Meeting, hearing and learning with the many Torah and public personalities Beth Jacob is privileged to host is a truly enriching experience. 

As a shul, we are proud to be a center of intellectual leadership in the Jewish community.  Our robust schedule of scholars in residence reflects this ideal.  We have the leaders in the fields of Torah thought, Israel advocacy, political activism and many other topics all coming together at Beth Jacob to offer the most complete growth experience for our members.

This Year: Past scholars in residence have included Natan Sharansky, Ambassador Yehuda Avner, Chief Rabbi Warren Goldstein, Yossi Klein Halevi, Ben Shapiro, Chief Rabbi David Lau, Dennis Prager, Reverend Dr. DeeDee Coleman, Rabbi Dr. Jacob J. Schacter, Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, Edwin Black, Rabbi Baruch Taub, Rabbi Dr. Shlomo Riskin, and many others.
