THE GOOD AND THE HOLY: COUNTER-INTUITIVE RELIGIOUS IDEAS FOR NOW

6 SESSIONS, BEGINS JANUARY 8

R. Noa Kushner

It is possible that some of our most pressing sociological and political questions cannot be solved with the language of the marketplace or even with detailed surveys and studies of the population. It is possible that in order to figure out what ails us as a society, we also desperately need a new set of ideas, religious ideas. In this interactive study class, we’ll try a few remedies on for size. No background needed.
