NOT IN GOD’S NAME: CONFRONTING RELIGIOUS VIOLENCE
Event 188 • • Venue: Tata Tent
There are many conflicts around the world at present that claim to be in the name of God – in Iraq, in Syria, in Gaza, and elsewhere. Rabbi Sacks argues forcefully that a true understanding of religion will enable and inspire the world to bring peace, not war; that far from leaving religion on the sidelines, it should be put at the heart of peacemaking efforts.
