Finding Faith without Fanaticism

Monday, April 20, 2009
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.
