Visioning Our World Anew
November 3, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Remote Access Only
The confluence of a global pandemic, social upheaval, and increasingly devastating weather-related disasters have heightened urgent questions about society, community and the fate of our planet. Join us for an in-depth conversation with Heather McGhee, Rabbi Benay Lappe, and Dr. Laurie Zoloth. Drawing from their respective expertise in the fields of social and economic policy, Jewish history and rabbinics, and ethics and theology, our speakers will discuss how we can use the crises of the past two years as an opportunity to reimagine and rebuild our world in a new image.
