Rabbi Jonathan Sacks at Rutgers


The Bildner Center was honored and delighted to host Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks on Monday, November 16 on the Rutgers campus. New Brunswick Chancellor Richard Edwards welcomed him to the university and addressed the importance of this discussion for Rutgers. Rabbi Sacks’s inspirational talk to an audience of 500 students, faculty and community members addressed the topic of his new book Not in God’s Name: Confronting Religious Violence. This timely and important subject left a deep impact on our campus and community, particularly in the wake of heightened tensions in Israel and the Middle East, and the tragic events in Paris.
