“…IS THE WORD OF THE LIVING GOD”
with Rabbi David Horowitz
Saturday, February 23, 2019
St. Mark’s UMC, 4801 Six Forks Rd., Raleigh, NC
As a people of faith, we often struggle to understand what it is that God expects of us. Through the eyes of the rabbis of old we will discern how we might approach thorny problems facing us. The work of the early rabbis expands our understanding of Biblical text and acts to make those teachings applicable to every generation. How do we make our decisions while following the Biblical commandment to “love our neighbors as ourselves”?
Rabbi David M. Horowitz is the rabbi emeritus of Temple Israel in Akron, Ohio. Prior to his election as rabbi of Temple Israel in 1983, Rabbi Horowitz served congregations in Indiana and Australia. Rabbi Horowitz received his bachelor degree from Tulane University in English Literature, his Bachelor of Hebrew Letters, Master of Arts, Ordination, and Doctor of Divinity (honoris Causa) from the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati, Ohio. He has taught philosophy and theology at Calumet College in Indiana, and courses in the Ethnic Studies department of Kent State University in Ohio.
