Book Talk: The Power of Moral Imagination by Joseph Telushkin

Hosted By: Orange County Jewish Community Scholar Program ("CSP")

Please join us as we present Rabbi Charlie Savenor with the first annual CSP “Maimonides Award for Excellence in Jewish Education”. Rabbi Savenor, Director of Congregational Education at Park Avenue Synagogue in NYC, has tirelessly worked to make Jewish learning come alive through his teaching, travel adventures and his personal example. In honor of Rabbi Savenor, Rabbi Joseph Telushkin will discuss his newest book (currently being written) – The Power of the Moral Imagination. Extraordinary advances have been made in the last century in medicine, science, and technology because individuals and/or groups of people have applied the full resources of their intellects to solving problems that had previously been thought to be insoluble. In terms of morality, progress has been less consistent. People rarely use the full range of their intelligence to solve the moral problems that afflict us in our daily behavior. “Moral Imagination” describes the sort of ingenious solutions offered in dozens of instances.

Rabbi Joseph Telushkin

Rabbi Joseph Telushkin is a spiritual leader, well-known scholar of Jewish history and ethics and a prolific author. His large body of work includes more than fifteen books of nonfiction, a mystery series, and television and movie scripts. His book Jewish Literacy: The Most Important Things to Know About the Jewish Religion, Its People, and Its History is the most widely read book on Judaism of the past two decades. His monumental work, A Code of Jewish Ethics: You Shall Be Holy, is a comprehensive presentation of Jewish teachings on the vital topic of personal character and integrity. Richard Joel, president of Yeshiva University, called the book, "a gift to humankind," and Rabbi David Wolpe hailed it "as a remarkable guide to goodness." His book, Words that Hurt, Words that Heal, inspired Senators Joseph Lieberman’s and Connie Mack’s Senate Resolution #151 to establish a National Speak No Evil Day in the United States, a day in which Americans would go for 24 hours without saying anything unkind or unfair about, or to, anyone.
