Voices of Wisdom Series begins with "Humility and Humiliation"
All of us dislike humiliation, whether it is ourselves, our family, our religion, or our country that is being humiliated. Each of the Abrahamic faiths teaches that God loves a humble spirit, and that the humiliation of others is to be avoided. Furthermore, the negative consequences of humiliating others are well documented on both a personal and national level. So why is there not more humility and less humiliation in our communities?
Renowned scholars in each of the Abrahamic traditions discussed "Humility and Humiliation" in the first of the Voices of Wisdom lectures at the Academy for Jewish Religion, California (AJRCA), on Monday, Nov. 26. AJRCA Provost Dr. Tamar Frankiel moderated the expert panel, consisting of Rabbi Elijah Schochet, PhD, Professor of Talmud at AJRCA; Dr. Kathleen Greider, Professor of Practical Theology, Claremont School of Theology (CST); and Prof. Ozgur Koca, Adjunct Professor of Islamic Philosophy, Bayan Claremont.
Mark your calendars for the second event in the series on Jan. 24 at the Islamic Center for Southern California.
