Reading Jewish Lives Presents Martin Buber: A Life of Faith and Dissent

The season is changing and as quick as a blink the trees will be golden and the air will be crisp. It’s a time to curl up with a good book. Why not get cozy with our community read, Martin Buber: A Life of Faith and Dissent by Dr. Paul Mendes-Flohr? Martin Buber spent his life debating and reinterpreting the ways of faith and inter-personal relationships. Fall into deep thought with us as we contemplate, along with Buber, the eternal questions of how we connect to God, our Jewish identity, and each other. We’ll continue the dialogue together with group discussions, and our author event with Dr. Mendes-Flohr.
