The Lehrhaus, or Study Hall, is a weekly reflection on the Torah portion for the preceding Sabbath based on a Massoretic approach to sacred text. The Lehrhaus is open to the public, is free of charge and will meet from February 4 through May 6, 2013, excluding March 4-9 (Spring Break) and March 25 - April 2 (Passover).
Rabbi Asher Finkel, Ph.D. has been a full Professor at Seton Hall University since 1975 when, in response to the Second Vatican Council, he helped found the Graduate Program in Jewish-Christian Studies and assisted in developing the program's unique curriculum, which serves as a model for eliminating prejudice through understanding. A disciple of Rabbi Joseph Ber Soloveitchik, Rabbi Finkel received his rabbinical ordination from the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary at Yeshiva University and earned his Ph.D. from Tübingen University (Germany). Before joining Seton Hall, he was an Assistant Professor at Tübingen University (1962-1966) and an Associate Professor at New York University (1966-1973).
