Lectures & Talks

We invite you to explore our diverse array of thought-provoking lectures, discussion groups, and featured speakers and look forward to learning alongside you.

Amram Scholar Series

This dynamic program of public lectures brings world-renowned authors, scholars, political leaders, policy experts, and theologians to WHC to share their perspectives on timely issues or their research into Jewish culture and history.

Every year, we are pleased to present prominent writers of the nation’s newest works on topics of Jewish interest, often in cooperation with the Jewish Book Council.

In the meantime, we invite you to check out our YouTube playlist to view many of our lectures from the 2021-2022 programming year.

We’re also pleased to welcome a variety of authors to WHC throughout the programming year through our partnership with the Jewish Book Council. Often presented by one of our auxiliary groups (i.e. EmptyNesters or WWHC) or our ECCs and Religious school, these lectures are a great way to continue lifelong learning and to connect with one another.
