Not In God’s Name: Does the Bible Justify Today’s Religious Violence?

Rabbi Gilah Langner

Sundays, October 30 and November 6, 2016
Bagels at 10:00 a.m., Discussion 10:30 a.m. – Noon

Is religion to blame for religious extremism and violence?  Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks acknowledges the role that the Bible has played in motivating religious violence.  But he sets out to make religion part of the solution, as he presents a radical rereading of the Hebrew Bible and the all-important stories of sibling rivalry in Genesis.  Is he right?  What does the most influential book ever written have to say for itself? Join the discussion and enjoy the brunch too.
