A Community Dinner Featuring Shearith Israel Member and Author, Scott Shay in Conversation with Rabbi Meir Soloveichik

Friday, November 9

Friday Evening, November 9 | Following Evening Services

Religion can be both inspiring and distressing. And many critiques of it are simultaneously compelling and dubious. In his new book, In Good Faith: Questioning Religion and Atheism, Scott Shay examines atheist arguments with a refreshing modern eye in this comprehensive look at our most fundamental questions about faith and reason.

Scott A. Shay has had a successful business career spanning Wall Street, private equity, venture capital, and banking. Throughout his life, he has also been a student of religion and how religion ought to apply to the world outside of the synagogue, church, or mosque, also authoring the best-selling title, Getting Our Groove Back: How to Energize American Jewry.
