Bernard-Henri Lévy Comes to Wilshire Boulevard Temple
Sunday, October 31 • 4:00 p.m. • In-Person Live at the Wilshire Boulevard Temple Glazer Campus and on Live-Stream
Philosopher, filmmaker, activist, Bernard-Henri Levy has written over thirty books and is considered one of the West’s most important public intellectuals. Over the past fifty years, Bernard-Henri Lévy has reported extensively on human rights abuses around the world. In 2020, Lévy traveled and reported from eight international hotspots – in Nigeria; Syrian and Iraqi Kurdistan; Ukraine; Somalia; Bangladesh; Lesbos, Greece; Libya; and Afghanistan – that have escaped global attention or active response.
In a deeply personal introduction to The Will to See, Lévy recounts the intellectual journey that led him to advocacy, arguing that a truly humanist philosophy must necessarily lead to action in defense of the most vulnerable – actions which he believes are the essence of what it means to be a Jew.
