University Lectures

Temple Beth Am is committed to bringing the Seattle community important and informative topics that impact the Jewish people both historically and in modern times. Our University Lecture Series presents engaging scholars who speak on their areas of expertise.

Past scholars include Noam Pianko on "Justifying Judaism in the Modern World"; Scott Noegel on "From Slavery to Sinai: New Findings from Ancient Egypt and the Story of Our Exodus"; Devin Naar on "The Sephardic Jewish Experience"; and 2017's scholar, Kathie Friedman, on this year's timely topic, "Immigrants and Refugees: We Were Once Strangers, Too."
