Rabbis’ Teas

Utilizing a form common to Yale Residential Colleges, the Slifka Rabbis’ Teas afford an opportunity to host one or two public figures in an interview-style, public conversation context. Among the authors and journalists, academics and artists, and social commentators, guests this past year included internationally renowned actor Mandy Patinkin, Dr. Ruth Westheimer and New York Times rock critic Jon Caramanica. Conversations range among the literary, political, artistic, and contemporary issues confronting our various communities today.
