Friday Noon Study Group

Friday, August 23, 12:00-1:00 

We will begin a discussion of Rabbi Jonathan Sacks’s To Heal a Fractured World:  The Ethics of Responsibility. 

What are our duties to others, to society, and to humanity? How do we live a meaningful life in an age of global uncertainty and instability? In To Heal a Fractured World, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks offers answers to these questions by looking at the ethics of responsibility. In his signature plainspoken, accessible style, Rabbi Sacks shares with us traditional interpretations of the Bible, Jewish law, and theology, as well as the works of philosophers and ethicists from other cultures, to examine what constitutes morality and moral behavior.

For our first session on Friday, August 23, we’ll look into Rabbi Sacks’s background and view one of his TED talks.  We may then discuss one or two passages from the opening chapter of To Heal a Fractured World.  On Friday, August 30, we’ll talk about the first three chapters of the book. 

Our informal discussion group meets every Friday from 12-1, in the CBI Library.  All are welcome to join us, regardless of their level of expertise or attendance at previous Friday study group sessions.     Copies of Rabbi Sacks’s book are available at a variety of internet outlets.  If you have questions, please contact Jay Jacoby at jbjacoby@uncc.edu.
