For over 3,000 years, Judaism has claimed a unique insight into the nature of God. But that insight has evolved together with the stories of our people. In the most recent centuries, the Reform Movement emerged as a religious response to modernity. But modern events and ideas, from the Holocaust to the State of Israel and the digital revolution have challenged us to ask: “Where is God in Reform Judaism?”

“I tattooed a number on her arm. She tattooed her name on my heart.” We are honored to be joined by Heather Morris to discuss her international and New York Times bestselling novel based on a true story. For readers of Schindler’s List and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas comes a heartbreaking true story of the very best of humanity in the very worst of circumstances. The book tells the true story of Ludwig (Lale) Sokolov, a Jewish prisoner who was given the job of tattooing identification numbers on prisoners’ arms in the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. One day, he met Gita while she was waiting in line to be tattooed and it was love at first sight. And so began one of the most life-affirming, courageous, unforgettable and human stories of the Holocaust: the love story of the tattooist of Auschwitz. A book signing will follow the event.
