Micha Brumlik: Morning Hours. Mendelssohn.

Berlin and Hamburg Lectures (in German)

Morgenstunden. Vorlesungen über das Daseyn Gottes (Morning Hours. Lectures on God's Existence) is the title of Moses Mendelssohn’s final work, pub­lished in 1785. Its seven­teen lec­tures bring to­gether his most important themes and questions; in a sense they are his life's ques­tions:

How does tolerance arise in the world? What connects faith and reason? What certain answers are there to our basic ex­istential ques­tions? Why should we talk to each other?

The “Morgenstunden” series of events, which take place alter­nately in Berlin and Ham­burg, bring Moses Mendelssohn’s work into the twenty-first century: well-known perso­nalities address contem­porary issues in the light of their own life experiences – always against the back­drop of Mendelssohn’s life themes and his passion for dialogue. Micha Brumlik, publicist and Senior Research Fellow at the Center for Jewish Studies Berlin-Brandenburg, will speak at the Jewish Museum Berlin.

In cooperation with the Berlin-Brandenburg Aca­demy of Sciences and Huma­nities, the Institute for the History of German Jews, the New Syna­gogue Berlin – Centrum Juda­icum foun­dation, the Catholic Academy Ham­burg and the Mendelssohn Society.
