Hannah Arendt This Sunday


Join us this Sunday at 10 AM in the Adas Emuno Social Hall for Hannah Arendt on Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Screening and Discussion

This Adult Education event will feature a screening of Hannah Arendt, a recently released film directed by Margarethe von Trotta. Arendt, a German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist, is considered one of the leading intellectuals of the 20th century, and this biographical film focuses on the period in her life when she reported for The New Yorker on the war crimes trial of Adolf Eichmann. 

Dr. Lance Strate of Fordham University, who is a regular guest blogger for the Hannah Arendt Center at Bard College (as well as President of Adas Emuno), will provide an introduction to this full-length film, which is in English, German, Hebrew, and French (with subtitles), and lead a discussion on its controversial subject-matter following the screening.

The event is free and open to the public.
