ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
Rabbi Joshua Berman is a senior lecturer in the Bible Department at Bar-Ilan University in Ramat Gan, Israel. Berman is the author of The Temple: Its Symbolism and Meaning Then and Now (Jason Aronson Publishers, 1995, 2010). His book is widely known for its rigorous scholarship and spiritual enrichment, animating the meaning of the ancient Temple of Jerusalem, its rites, and the biblical passages that describe it. Watch for an article from this book that will soon be posted on Interpreter at www.mormoninterpreter.com.
Berman received a BA in religion from Princeton University and a PhD in bible from Bar-Ilan University. An orthodox rabbi, he and his wife have four children and reside in Bet Shemesh, Israel.
His brief visit to Utah is co-sponsored by BYU Studies, the Academy for Temple Studies, the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies, the Interpreter Foundation, and the J. Reuben Clark Law School.
The presentation is free, open to the public, and will be recorded and made available a few weeks afterward via the BYU Studies Youtube channel. We invite you to view videos of past Temple Studies conferences at www.youtube.com/user/AcademyTempleStudies.
