Sacred Stories: Social Justice Shabbat featuring the Isaac Memorial Lecture with Rabbi Menachem Creditor

Friday, January 17, 2020 20 Tevet 5780

7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

What is the role of religion in public policy debates? Should religion enter the public sphere? In what ways might it motivate activism? When should religion take a back seat? When should it be out front? At this year’s Social Justice Shabbat, these important questions will be addressed by one of America’s leading rabbis, Rabbi Menachem Creditor.
Rabbi Menachem Creditor serves as the Pearl and Ira Meyer Scholar in Residence at UJA-Federation New York, where his role is amplifying Jewish learning, leadership and values within the UJA-Federation community of supporters, staff, and partners. In 2013, he was named by Newsweek as one of the fifty most influential rabbis in America and has been involved in the leadership of Rabbis Against Gun Violence, American Jewish World Service, AIPAC and the One America Movement, an organization dedicated to bringing together Americans of different faiths and opinions. 
Among his 19 books and six albums of original Jewish music are “And Yet We Love: Poems,” “Holding Fast: Jewish Respond to American Gun Violence,” and “Olam Chesed Yibaneh/A World 
of Love.” 
Rabbi Menachem Creditor's visit is made possible by the generosity of an anonymous donor.
