Steven Gimbel, “Einstein’s Jewish Science”

David Lipson Memorial Lecture

Albert Einstein as a young man rejected any sense of Jewish identity, yet in his last years before fleeing Germany, he began to seek opportunities to address explicitly Jewish audiences and did so using the pronouns "we" and "us."  What were the factors that led Einstein to re-embrace his Jewish identity and what did the notion of "Jewish" mean to him?

This event is free and open to the public. No registration required. Limited seating.
