Sunday, May 15, 2022 14 Iyyar 5782

5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

*This event has been rescheduled to Oct. 23, sorry for any inconvenience* Join us for a fascinating talk with Joseph Gainza on the role of religion in nonviolent struggles for peace. The 20th century saw the rise of religious faith-based organizations and groups working to advance the cause of peace. They addressed such issues as conscription, nuclear weapons, war and US foreign and military policy.  Mainline Protestant churches,  progressive Catholics, the traditional Peace Churches, Jewish and Buddhist organizations  worked with secular groups to forge powerful movements to oppose war and all forms of  violence, expose underlying causes of war, and the growing militarization of US society.  The Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival today carries on the legacy  of Rev. Martin Luther King who named the three great evils corrupting American society:  racism, extreme materialism and militarism. 

Movements of the Soul: The Role of Religion in Nonviolent Struggles for Peace is a  Vermont Humanities program hosted by Beth Jacob Synagogue. (Supported in part by the  National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions, or  recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of the  NEH or Vermont Humanities.)
