Books and Bridges at WBW: Nathan Devir @ Weller Book Works
Sep 20 @ 6:30 pm
Books and Bridges at WBW: Nathan Devir @ Weller Book Works |  |  |

It’s our next Books and Bridges event! On September 20, WBW welcomes Nathan Devir and his presentation “Strained Boundaries: Exclusivism versus Pluralism in the Literature of Chaim Potok”.

The award-winning novelist and rabbi Chaim Potok often referred to himself as a zwischenmensch (Yiddish: an “in-between person”) with respect to his own religious and social identity; and the characters that populate his novels also exhibit this same existential malaise. Finding Orthodox Judaism too restrictive, and secular American culture too permissive, they are unable to belong wholeheartedly to either milieu. This lecture by University of Utah Jewish Studies professor Nathan Devir will use Potok’s literary works to showcase what it means to be an “in-between person” in modern society, regardless of one’s particular faith group, especially when the loyalty to that group often proves difficult to reconcile with the freedom to explore one’s own personal spiritual and artistic visions allowed for in secular culture.

This event is organized by Books & Bridges — a community institute of ideas and conversation. Our mission is to facilitate discussion on the best of human thought. We explore the wisdoms of the world and apply them to modern life. We have no political, religious, or ideological affiliation. In a society divided by uncivil discourse, the beauty of the humanities—novels, history, philosophy, poetry, ethics, and epics—lifts us to our better angels. In our busy world we need space for friends and fellow learners to do a little more heart-to-heart and mind-to-mind.
