Rabbi Eilberg will speak during services at both times listed above. She will also lead a Q and A session between services.

This is the third lecture in a series of four. The Psalmist commands us to seek peace and pursue it.  The command is not only for diplomats, elected officials, or specialists.  It is for all of us.  How will we live into this command in our own lives, and what would the world be like if we did?

The Series: Drawing on Judaism's rich body of sacred texts about peace and peacemaking, which she explores in her recently published From Enemy to Friend: Jewish Wisdom and the Pursuit of Peace, Rabbi Amy Eilberg, the first woman ordained as a rabbi in Judaism's Conservative Movement and a Jay Phillips Center rabbi-in-residence, will discuss why conflict arises among individuals and groups, what contributes to the resolution of conflict, and how each of us can serve the cause of peace.  Click here to see the series homepage.
