Finding Faith without Fanaticism
Rabbi Brad Hirschfield, like all of us, was shaken by the events of September 11, 2001 – but his reasons were different. Once a militant Zionist activist in the West Bank, Rabbi Hirschfield saw the terrorist acts as a reflection of his own fanatical past. In his new book, “You Don’t Have to Be Wrong for Me to Be Right: Finding Faith without Fanaticism,” he encourages tolerance, inclusiveness, and a movement toward religious plurality. He’ll expound on these ideas on our show this Monday. Call with your thoughts on whether – and how – religions with differing principles can peacefully coexist.
