Violence & Non-Violence in the Judaic Tradition

October 19 , 5:00 pm


T’ruah presents a book symposium on “Passionate Pacifist: Essential Writings of Aaron Samuel Tamares,” edited, translated and introduced by Everett Gendler (Teaneck: Ben Yehuda Press, 2020). Gendler, a Conservative rabbi known as the “father of Jewish environmentalism,” was recently awarded the Presidents’ Medallion from the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion “in recognition of a lifetime commitment to social justice and environmentalism.” Panelists include
Rabbi Jill Jacobs, executive director of T’ruah; Marc Gopin, director of the Center for World Religions, Diplomacy and Conflict Resolution; and
Shira Billet, a postdoctoral fellow in Judaic Studies and Philosophy at Yale University. Register here.
