Our Values: In Theory and In Practice

November 20, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join the Jewish-Islamic Dialogue Society for a two-part session on Jewish and Muslim values, comparing and contrasting the religious and moral ideals as written versus the nuance and variety in their manifestation. The dialogue will consider questions such as, what are our values in theory, and how do we tend to behave in practice where the rubber meets the road? In what ways have our ideals uplifted us?  And how have they tended to give way to alternative, less-elevated choices?  Finally, what lessons can we learn from this theory/practice split to improve our behavior as individuals and as faith communities? 

Part One will focus on Judaism, with Rabbis Gilah Langner and David Shneyer. It will take place on November 20 from 2-4 PM on Zoom. Please RSVP to [email protected]
