Acharei Kiddush: “Choosing Hope” Book Talk

February 11, 2023 at 1:15 pm - 2:30 pm

A conversation with BAS members David Arnow author of Choosing Hope: The Heritage of Judaism and David Aftergood.

Grounded in a contemporary theology that situates the responsibility for creating a better world in human hands, with God acting through us, Choosing Hope can help us both affirm hope in times of trial and transmit our deepest hopes to the next generation.

David Aftergood will conduct the interview and facilitate a Q&A session.
