Rabbi Brovender on Art, Tefillah,
and Redeeming Modern Orthodoxy

On March 14, 2005, ATID President Rabbi Chaim Brovender engaged the ATID Fellows in a free wheeling discussion of the potential for art to energize Jewish life and prayer, and how communing with great works of the human spirit just might redeem Modern Orthodoxy in the contemporary world.

We invite you to listen on-line or download the audio of the talk.

During the discussion, we screened a clip of Bill Moyer's interview with Sister Wendy Beckett. To view the transcript of that clip as a PDF, click here.
