"Jewish God-Talk for Post-Modern Times" with Scholar in Residence Art Green

March 15, 2013 8:15 PM

Or Hadash's Scholar in Residence - Art Green - will speak Friday evening following a 7:30 service.

His topic Friday evening is: "Jewish God-Talk for Post-Modern Times" Is there a Jewish religious language that can work for the twenty-first century? Can you have a Jewish spiritual life without "believing in God?" Or is there a way to redeem that word from our childhood associations that might make it work in a "Judaism for adults?"

Art Green, a nationally recognized historian of Jewish religion and a theologian, is the founding dean of Hebrew College's Rabbinical School and now serves as its rector. He has lectured widely and taught Jewish mysticism, Hasidism and theology to several generations of students at the University of Pennsylvania; the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, where he served as both dean and president; Brandeis University; and Hebrew College. Green is the founder of Havurat Shalom, an egalitarian Jewish community in Somerville, Mass., and remains a leading independent figure in the Jewish renewal movement. He is the author of more than a dozen books; his most recent is "Radical Judaism: Rethinking God and Tradition," (Yale University Press, 2010). Green has been named to Newsweek and The Daily Beast's list of Top 50 Influential Rabbis in America every year since 2008.
