Speaker(s): 
Dr. William Kolbrener

From Shakespeare to Freud, Einstein to Eliot - what is the role of play in creative thinking?; and is there a role for play in contemporary Jewish life? We explore how play and desire are essential for a radical Jewish creativity for the 21st century. Not nurturing blind conformity and compliance, our Judaism should nourish an openness to play, a yearning for making new connections, and taking the risk of getting 'caught in the act.'
