There are so many good programs and lectures in NYC and the burbs, where do you begin?
But if you’re interested in the role that religion should play in the public square, this one should be good.
The Jewish Theological Seminary in NYC is holding a forum on Wednesday, May 2, on the responsibility of religiously committed intellectuals to speak out on the political, cultural and social questions that affect everybody. It’s at 7 p.m.
Taking part will be: Arnold M. Eisen, chancellor-elect, JTS; Lenn Goodman, the Andrew Mellon Professor of Humanities at Vanderbilt University; the Rev. Richard John Neuhaus, head of the FIRST THINGS religion journal; and Os Guinness, the writer and social critic.
It’s a real good line-up. They’ll chew it up, for sure. But I have another commitment that night.
“JTS”:http://www.jtsa.edu/ is located at 3080 Broadway (at 122nd Street).
