Speaking Event: The Torah of Reconciliation
Join Rabbi Shelly Lewis as he discusses his groundbreaking new book. The Torah Of Reconciliation is the result of Rabbi Lewis’ personal, passionate search for wisdom on peacemaking recorded in Jewish tradition. Beginning after the grief surrounding 9/11, he was determined to locate the pathway described in Jewish texts towards reconciliation. While there are, to be sure, contradictory messages to be found in the length and breadth of the tradition, there is an obsession with overcoming conflict and avoiding violence in the service of a world at peace. Peacemaking is arguably the key pillar among Jewish values. A people that has known repeatedly the agony of conflict has never stopped longing for and searching for the keys to security and tranquility.
The event is free and open to the public.
