Friends – I had a call today from Rabbi David Seidenberg, author of the new book, “Crossing the Threshold: God’s Image in the More-than-Human World.” He saw my previous post about losing our distinctions, and he corrected me about my grave misunderstanding of his book. I stand gravely corrected – I actually have no idea what he means by “G-d’s image in the more-than-human world.” And I didn’t read his book, because it is not available yet. So, in essence, I judged a book by its cover; or at least its title. Misjudged, that is.
So Rabbi Seidenberg called me and graciously offered to dialogue with me, in public, on the subject of Torah and Evolution. And so it shall be, b’ezrat Hashem, 7:15 pm Monday January 9th at Aish Kodesh 1805 Balsam Ave. Light refreshments and some heavy conversation.
I’m excited. Dialogue is the purest form of Torah, in my view, and I look forward to discussing and learning. Hope to see you there.
