Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA – April 7, 2016

by George J Elbaum

MIT is my Alma Mater, and I was invited by its Office of the Chancellor and MIT Hillel to give my talk there on April 7, 2016.  The audience of 50-60 was composed of students, faculty, and others attracted by MIT Hillel’s posted announcements (see below), electronic billboard ads and emails.  The resulting audience included MIT’s Chancellor Cynthia Barnhart, Assistant Dean of Science Elizabeth Chadis, Physics Department’s Prof. Krishna Rajagopal and Director of Development Erin McGrath, MIT Hillel’s Executive Director Rabbi Michelle Fisher (who “roped me” in 2010 into giving my very first talk on Holocaust Memorial Day at the event she organized), and Hillel’s Director of Development Marla Choslovsky.

The whole event (with food, to boot!) was organized in a very short time by Leah Slaten, President of MIT Hillel’s Undergraduate Board, with support from Hillel’s Ben Flax who got the projector to work (whew!) –  thank you, Leah and Ben.
