An interview with our Scholar-In-Residence

As most Beth Am members know by now, this weekend, we’re incredibly lucky to be able to welcome Dr. Joel Hoffman as our Scholar In Residence. In addition to speaking Friday night and leading Torah study Saturday morning, Dr. Hoffman will be talking about his new book And God Said: How Translations Conceal the Bible's Original Meaning on Saturday night (starting at 7:30).

The Tampa Jewish Federation, a co-sponsor of this weekend, sat for a video-conference interview with Dr. Hoffman, and if you’d like to get a taste of what his book is about, take a peek at

If you aren’t able to make the talk, it’s still more than worth picking up the book – it’s a totally different approach to the Bible than most of us have ever taken before!
