Has the New York City lecture taken place yet? If not, I would like to attend. Can you provide details about the NYC visit if it has not taken place as of yet? I am a retired professor of Old Testament and have had a great interest in the Samaritan community since I attended the celebration of the Samaritan Passover at Gerizim in the spring of 1967. At that time I met Priest Tawfiek Taka Samri.
I had the honor of speaking with Benny last year in Cincinnati. Would love to attend his Cincinnati dates again.
Happy to see you again, Jeff. I will be in Cincinnati Hebrew Union College in December 17-24. I am open to meeting you any time in between. Keep me posted please about your initiatives.
