Franz Rosenzweig finished composing The Star of Redemption on February 16, 1919. To mark the hundredth anniversary of the book’s completion, we invite the public to an international conference reassessing the culminating concept of The Star: redemption. The conference will host one hundred internationally renowned scholars, and will be highlighted by a series of evening lectures.
