As we observe today’s third yahrzeit of TRADITION‘s founder, Rabbi Dr. Norman Lamm z”l, we are pleased to announce that the entire contents of our Rabbi Lamm Memorial Volume are available open-access at TraditionOnline.org
Rabbi Dr. Norman Lamm was unique in his talents, thought, and creativity, expressed through his many roles: President of Yeshiva University, congregational rabbi, writer, speaker, and founding editor of the RCA’s journal of Jewish thought, TRADITION.
With the goal of honoring Rabbi Lamm’s myriad contributions to the spiritual and intellectual life of our community and the Jewish world, TRADITION (Summer 2021) released a special book-length, hard-bound Memorial Volume exploring his literary legacy. The issue, containing 35 essays by leading figures in the world of Jewish life and ideas, focuses on the wide-ranging areas of Rabbi Lamm’s writing, assessing his lasting contributions to Jewish thought through the prism of his prolific works.
