92Y Video: Rabbi Meir Lau In Conversation With Rabbi Menachem Genack

Did you miss Rabbi Israel Meir Lau in conversation with Rabbi Menachem Genack at 92nd Street Y in November? Enjoy a clip from that extraordinary evening, above.

Rabbi Lau regaled the audience with tales of his childhood during the Holocaust and his experiences as Chief Rabbi of Israel. Audience members had the opportunity to ask questions and Rabbi Lau was candid and authentic. He commented on questions such as the recent exchange for Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit and whether or not Yom HaShoah should be commemorated on Tisha B’Av.  

Many of his stories are featured in Rabbi Lau’s new book, Out of the Depths: The Story of a Child of Buchenwald Who Returned Home at Last.

This endowed lecture, the annual Francine and Abdallah Simon State of World Jewry Lecture, is just one of the incredible lectures offered by the Bronfman Center for Jewish Life at 92Y. See all upcoming lectures of Jewish Interest, here

If you’re interested in more stories from the Holocaust, don’t miss the series of special program at 92Y, Will to Create, Will to Live: The Culture of Terezín in January. One featured event, The Story of Terezin, on Jan 18, will delve into one of the most moving and inspiring stories of the Holocaust era with documentary film clips and stories from survivors of Terezín itself.
