Faith and Economic Justice: A Christian-Jewish Exploration

| Monday, February 27th, 2012 | Comments Off on Faith and Economic Justice: A Christian-Jewish Exploration

This spring, The Memorial Church, Harvard Hillel, and the Episcopal Chaplaincy at Harvard will present a lecture series entitled “Faith and Economic Justice: A Jewish-Christian Exploration.” This series will call upon experts in law, history, and economics to consider the role of faith in addressing issues of economic inequality. What place do faith-based perspectives have in national and international conversations regarding economic justice? How can secular analysis of these issues inform a faith-based approach? Do our troubled financial times reveal sacred imperatives?

“Faith and Economic Justice: A Jewish-Christian Exploration” will take place over three evenings this March:

Tuesday, March 6, 6:00 p.m.,
Richard Parker, Harvard Kennedy School;

Wednesday, March 21, 6:00 p.m.,
Benjamin Friedman, Department of Economics, Harvard University;

Wednesday, March 28, 6:00 p.m.,
Judge Nancy Gertner, Harvard Law School.

All lectures are free and open to the public.
