Religion and Morality in the Shadow of the Holocaust

In the decades since the Holocaust, Jewish and non-Jewish thinkers alike have had to re-evaluate core religious and moral questions, how to take power to stop, how to restore the ideal of the image of God, how to deal with the religious-secular divide and the responsibilities of bystanders. Join us to discuss the most important and influential conclusions that thinkers have drawn in the shadow of the Holocaust.

Speaker: Rabbi Irving (Yitz) Greenberg serves as the President of the J.J. Greenberg Institute for the Advancement of Jewish Life (JJGI) and as Senior Scholar in Residence at Hadar. Rabbi Greenberg was ordained by Beth Joseph Rabbinical Seminary of Brooklyn, New York and has a PhD in history from Harvard University.

He was a pioneer in the development of Holocaust education and commemoration. When Elie Wiesel served as chairman of the President’s Commission on the Holocaust, Rabbi Greenberg served as its (Executive) Director. The Commission recommended and drew the blueprint for the creation of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum on the National Mall in Washington. He served as the Museum’s chairman from 2000-2002.
