A Report on "What is Religion For?" - A Jewish Public Forum Seminar

By Robert Rabinowitz

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, November 2001

During the series of seminars sponsored by the Jewish Public Forum at CLAL to explore the ethical, social, and spiritual changes in the aftermath of 9/11, a public forum seminar was held to discuss the question, "What is Religion For?" 25 individuals with a diverse range of religious, academic, and professional backgrounds were gathered for this specific seminar. The first main sentiment that arose was that individuals and groups must find a way to be open and engage with people who don't share the same values or identities. Secondly, the boundaries of responsibility must be widened. The speakers move on to discuss open dialogue, globalization, responsibility, and hope for the future in a truly interactive and insightful open forum.
