FEARLESS RABBINIC LEADER & INNOVATIVE MEDIEVAL MYSTIC

One of the most influential rabbis of the medieval era was Rabbi Moshe ben Nachman of Gerona, best known by his acronymic name, Ramban.

A prodigious scholar and prolific writer, Ramban vigorously defended traditional Judaism, both in his writings for a Jewish audience and in his public appearances in front of Christian clergy. Sharp, witty, with a depth and breadth of knowledge that is simply breathtaking, Ramban also became the first major rabbinic figure to introduce kabbalistic ideas into the Jewish mainstream.

In this comprehensive lecture, Rabbi Dunner takes you on a tour of Ramban’s rollercoaster life, including his involvement in the bitter Rambam controversy, and his famous debate with the Jewish convert to Christianity, Pablo Christiani, in what became known as the “Barcelona Disputation.”
