* 4 (Sunday): 4:00 PM — Humanistic Judaism & its Enlightenment Roots: Pt 2
Baruch SpinozaThe European Enlightenment of the 17th and 18th centuries signaled a devotion to reason over religious revelation and authority. For many Jews this meant the shedding of traditional rabbinic Judaism and a search for new ways to be Jewish. Kol Hadash will explore both the general European Enlightenment and the Jewish Enlightenment (Haskalah) in a two-part series led by three of our members: philosopher Bernie Rosen, historian Marilyn Boxer, and Michael Prival, International Institute for Secular Humanistic Judaism. Free of charge. Albany Community Center, Rm II.
