Religion as the Solution, Not the Problem:

"The Dignity of Difference" by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks

Co-teachers: Dr. Bruce Chalmer and Deborah Johnson

Writing shortly after 9/11, Rabbi Sacks recognizes the destructive potential of religious zealotry, but then makes a passionate case for religion, in all its diversity, as a force for human dignity.  His inclusive vision of how the world might build a more religiously sensitive climate challenges the idea that tolerance of other religions is all that is needed.  Not only is tolerance not enough, but Sacks suggests that nothing short of the total recognition of the validity of other religious paths to G-d will create a less violent world. His ideas are controversial, new and will challenge us as we create our own views as a class. The classes will be based on the ideas in Rabbi Sacks's book, but feel free to attend and participate even if you have not read the book.
