Veritas is a tale of fierce intellectual rivalries at the highest levels of academia, a piercing psychological portrait of a disillusioned college dropout whose life had reached a breaking point, and a tragedy about a brilliant scholar handed an ancient papyrus that appealed to her greatest hopes for Christianity–but forced a reckoning with fundamental questions about the nature of truth and the line between faith and reason.

For our third annual Derekh Speaker Series, we have invited authors from across the country to discuss their books at Beth Shalom. This year’s authors are united in how they uncover hidden stories – stories like those of Naamah on the Ark, race car driving against Nazi Germany, academic fraud in the nation’s top universities, unsung genius women, and an escape from Tzarist Russia gone wrong.


The talks are free and open to the public! Books with signed bookplates are made available from White Whale Bookstore.

This series of talks by five authors from across the country is made available through the Jewish Book Council and funded by Seth Glick and Carolyn Slayton.
