Leo Baeck Institute presents Michael A. Meyer in a discussion of his new biography of Leo Baeck, one of the most significant Jewish religious thinkers of the 20th century.

The institutions that bear his name in New York, London, Berlin, and Jerusalem are dedicated to the preservation of the cultural heritage of German-speaking Jewry. Meyer is the Adolph S.
