Religion is Not a Threat: An Evening with Rabbi Jonathan Sacks (Past Event)

Religion is Not a Threat: An Evening with Rabbi Jonathan Sacks

Date + Time

March 15, 2016

Quick Summary

The world, it seems, might be better off without religion. Witness the horrific violence of the Islamic State, or look across the ages and see crusades, inquisitions, and a European world awash in violence, all done in the name of religion.

But what if, as Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks argues, religion is not the problem? What if the very potent idea of "religion" is often hijacked and abused by those who wield it with violence?
