About this Event
101 Lampe Dr., Raleigh, NC 27695
Jewish Studies invites students, faculty, staff and the public to a lecture by David J. Halperin, emeritus professor of religion at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, on the 17th-century Sephardic Jewish Kabbalist Abraham Miguel Cardozo. Cardozo is a fascinating figure who embodies many of the currents in early modern Jewish life. Born to a Converso family in Spain, Cardozo returned to Judaism, becoming a prominent Kabbalist and prophet for the false Jewish Messiah, Sabbatai Zevi.
