In his new book Revolutionary Love (2019), Rabbi Michael Lerner writes that progressives need a more robust spiritual and psychological dimension to our thinking. He calls for a “new bottom line” of love, generosity, kindness, and environmental responsibility.
In this evening event, Rabbi Lerner presents a detailed strategy on how we can build that world together by treating others as embodiments of the sacred, and allowing the earth to evoke in us awe, wonder, and radical amazement. Learner Activists and skeptical friends alike will find inspiration in his compelling, prophetic vision.
