Putting God Second: How to Save Religion From Itself
Mar 1 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The past two decades have seen religion emerge as a central force in world politics and a frequent instigator of global conflict. We have witnessed multiple manifestations of global Islamist terror and have seen both Muslim and Jewish religious ideologies increasingly mainstreamed into political governance in ways that tend to fuel and exacerbate conflicts. This re-emergence of God as a dominant force in world affairs, moreover, is not only relegated to the Middle East. Religion is also playing an increasingly influential and often contentious role in political discourse and public policy in the United States.

If religion is supposed to guard our best human virtues, why does it so often lead to war and injustice? When God enters the conversation and dictates human ethical and social norms, is this a force for good or evil? For moral progress or moral corruption? What are the consequences of faith?

Join us as we examine Donniel Hartman’s radical and provocative notion that religion has an “autoimmune disease,” a critical flaw that leads to its misuse. We will discuss the “disease’s” two main symptoms: “God intoxication” and “God manipulation,” and Hartman’s “cure” for their pathology.

Movie, Lunch and Discussion at Adat Shalom
Mar 4 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Please join Temple Adat Shalom for lunch and a screening of "Salam Neighbor" followed by discussion led by Rabbi David Castiglione at Temple Adat Shalom, Fischlowitz Cultural Center. "Salam Neighbor" follows the adventure of two Americans who deliberately head to the edge of war, just seven miles from the Syrian border, to live among 80,000 uprooted refugees in Jordan's Za'atari refugee camp.  As the first film makers allowed by the UN to register and set-up a tent inside a refugee camp, Zach and Chris plunge into the heart of the world's most pressing humanitarian crisis. Donations welcome to offset cost of lunch.

Building the Holy Place: An Afternoon of Chanting and Meditation
Mar 5 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

As we cultivate connection between us in spiritual community, we must also do the work of creating holy connection inside our hearts. It is that inner work which will form the foundation for our work in community. In this experiential workshop we will study the model of the Mishkan in the Book of Exodus as the key to our liberation, as we build a place for God to dwell within us, between us and among us.
