Oct 30 at 3:30 pm - How do we respond to Good and Evil? Our Jewish sages reply.

Join Dr. Virginia Shabatay in a presentation and discussion on the experience and understanding of good and of evil by Holocaust survivors Elie Wiesel, Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, and our own dear Rabbi Yehuda Shabatay.  Interestingly, there is one trait which is emphasized in Torah, among other sources, as fostering evil. What do you think it is? We’ll venture out and see what Arthur Ashe, a great tennis champion, has to say!  And something is asked of us. What is it?  Come for a lively, challenging discussion!
