Could this rabbi be a first in Congress? - The Washington Post

November 3, 2017
Since the founding of the republic, there have been dozens of Protestant ministers in Congress, and a handful serve right now. Two Catholic priests, too, have served in the House of Representatives. But despite the large number of Jews elected to Congress, not once has a rabbi been elected. In fact, only two have ever run, and neither had much of a chance: In 2012, pop-advice author, television rabbi and Michael Jackson confidant Shmuley Boteach lost badly in his New Jersey district, and in 2008 Dennis Shulman — who got a great deal of attention for being blind and thus a rare disabled...

Greg Epstein: Humanism in the Age of Trump

(All day)

Location: 

30 John F. Kennedy St, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
“Don’t Believe in God? You’re Not Alone.” That was one of the slogans on ads adorning Boston’s Red Line T, the New York City Subway, and busses and billboards nationwide, when Greg Epstein’s book Good Without God was published back in 2009. At that moment, atheism and agnosticism were becoming not only more common, but more normal. Greg’s message was that the nonreligious have a positive, inspiring and ethical way of life -- call it humanism if you like the word -- and that “lifestance” had made the world better in countless ways, from its critique of religious hypocrisy in ancient India to...
