BITES, BOOKS & BUBBLY
Morality: Restoring the Common Good in Divided Times
by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks
Facilitator: Cantor Rachel Gottlieb Kalmowitz
(in-person – Prentis Memorial Library)
Bites & Books is back with a new added twist – something bubbly! Join us for good nosh and a bubbly drink (think sparkling juices, water, or even mimosas!) as well as great conversation.
In Morality, respected faith leader and public intellectual Rabbi Jonathan Sacks traces today’s crisis to our loss of a strong, shared moral code and our elevation of self-interest over the common good. Sacks leads readers from ancient Greece to the Enlightenment to the present day to show that there is no liberty without morality and no freedom without responsibility, arguing that we all must play our part in rebuilding a common moral foundation. A major work of moral philosophy, Morality is an inspiring vision of a world in which we can all find our place and face the future without fear.
