Rabbi Barbara Cohen will present this program. She explains, "There have always been individuals, sane or not, who believe themselves to be the next Messiah but their influence is usually limited to a small group of adherents in a limited geographic area. Our exploration of the false Messiah, Shabbatai Tzvi, a 17th century figure of immense impact on the Jewish world, was unlike other outbreaks of messianic fervor in its appeal, scope and effect.”
