Israel’s justice minister will speak on social, economic goals at YU

Ayelet Shaked
Ayelet Shaked

Israel’s Justice Minister, Ayelet Shaked, will talk about social and economic justice at Yeshiva University Museum in Manhattan on Wednesday, September 30, at 7 p.m. Ms. Shaked will be in conversation with Suzanne Last Stone, University Professor of Jewish Law and Contemporary Civilization at YU’s Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.

This talk is inspired by the museum’s exhibition, “Fields of Dreams: Living Shmita in the Modern World,” on display through January 3. The exhibition — the first of its kind on the concept of shmita — focuses on the idea and practice of the sabbatical year, and in the process, highlights the modern story and contemporary relevance of the biblical practice.

The museum is at 15 W. 16th St. For information, call (212) 294-8330.
