Part of the Jewish Biography as History lecture series by Dr. Henry Abramson.

  1. I really enjoyed the Spinoza lecture, Hillel. It’s too good not to share so I’m sending it to some friends I know will really like it also. Thank you for the enlightenment and the jokes that keep the enlightenment light.
