Rabbi Joseph Klein Lecture



Rabbi Joseph Klein

The Rabbi Joseph Klein Lecture in Judaic Studies is offered each year under the auspices of the Ecumenical Institute at Assumption College. This endowed lectureship was established through gifts from friends at Temple Emmanuel, and commemorates his thirty years of service as a spokesman for interfaith cooperation in Worcester.

The purpose of the lectureship is to bring to Worcester each year an outstanding scholar and teacher in the field of Judaic Studies to address the community on some aspect of historical Judaism as it relates to the Judaeo-Christian tradition, and thus to perpetuate the dedication to higher learning and interfaith dialogue that characterized Rabbi Klein’s years of service in Worcester.
