Central to our understanding of Jewish culture and civilization is a grasp of its many expressive forms — religious and secular, high and low, elite and popular — in the areas of the written word, the visual arts, and the performing arts.
Explore the words at the heart of Jewish culture, and make the case that Jewish continuity depends on written words and on ongoing conversation between the generations.

Great discussion on what is Jewish culture
I was initially expecting a summary of Jewish history and culture in a more theoretical way, however I felt very enthusiastic to hear this forum of ideas between people of such importance in Jewish culture. A philosophical discussion about the power of the written and the spoken word, the traditions and how Jewish culture was built along time and space.
