Marc Brettler is the Bernice and Morton Lerner Professor of Jewish Studies in the Department of Religious Studies at Duke University. He has published and lectured widely on metapor and the Bible, the nature of biblical historical texts and gender issues and the Bible.
Part of the Association for Jewish Studies (AJS) Distinguished Lectureship Program. The Emanuel Synagogue is a co-sponsor of this program with Congregation Beth Israel and other synagogues.
