The Disputation

In 1263, the great rabbi Moses ben Nachman was forced to debate apostate friar Pablo Christiani in the court of King James of Spain. For four days they disputed the central issues that divide Judaism and Christianity. As a result of winning the debate and publishing his account, the rabbi was forced to leave the country. The BBC produced a wonderful stage version of this famous debate written by Hyam Maccoby. Rabbi Michael Skobac will present an introduction to this BBC film and will facilitate a discussion and Q&A session after the screening.
