Introducing:Facing a Radical Future: A Reading Group

June 26 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 pm

Facing a Radical Future Reading Group

Organized under the Rubric of Panim Hadashot-New Faces (www.panimhadashot.org)

Facilitated by Rabbi Dov Gartenberg

First Session, Monday, June 26, 2017 7-9pm. Meeting in the Serenity Room at Works Progress at 115 N. 85th St. Suite 202, Seattle, WA 98103

Contact: Rabbi Dov Gartenberg 206 257-1996 or dov@panimhadashot.org.

First two books: Yuval Harari: Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind and Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow

A group of us are forming a book group to explore nonfiction books that explore topics such as climate change, democracy under stress, transhumanism, and pluralism in a time of nationalism. Part of the discussion includes the question of the impact on Judaism of these emerging realities and poses the question of the adaptability of the tradition and our own lives in the face of radical social and natural change.   Rabbi Dov Gartenberg, an avid reader himself, will facilitate group discussions. The first two sessions will focus on two works listed above. We will discuss new book selections after the 2nd meeting.

If you are interested in participating in the group, please contact Rabbi Gartenberg at 206 257-1996 or at dov@panimhadashot.org
