Cool Jewish Events: Goy Launch Party

Celebrate the publishing of Ranjit Chatterjee‘s spellbinding spiritual autobiography “Goy” with us on Sunday, December 13, at the 92nd Street Y in New York City.

Author to speak, followed by a “question and answer” session and book signings.

Refreshments will be served throughout.

============================================

Dr. Chatterjee, an internationally known and published linguist, was the first to uncover and promote the Jewish nature of the writings and thought of Ludwig Wittgenstein, the Viennese post-linguist and ethical thinker who was forced to conceal his Jewish identity in a world of pre-war European anti-Semitism.

Upon meeting professor José Faur in Chicago, Dr. Chatterjee discovered first-hand the rabbinic tradition that was preserved among the Jewish communities of the Mediterranean, and was introduced to the rabbis’ theories of language – theories which he found remarkably similar to the ideas of the post-modern philosophers and post-linguists like Wittgenstein and Jacques Derrida.

As his work and his spirit began to come and grow together in unforeseen ways, Dr. Chatterjee found his relationship with G-d unfolding in a completely unexpected direction.
