Visiting Scholar Rabbi Ralph Mecklenburger


Adult Lounge


Tuesday, Oct 2, 2012


Rabbi Ralph Mecklenburger was Temple Beth Emeth’s rabbi from 1975-1983, and currently serves Beth El Congregation in Fort Worth. His recently published book, Our Religious Brains: What Cognitive Science Reveals about Belief, Morality, Community, and Our Relationship With God, examines the implications of cognitive study on theology. What is free will? How do we appreciate the meaning of life? How does religious experience play out in the brain? Please join us as Rabbi Mecklenburger discusses these topics and others in his book, which is available through all major booksellers. Please contact Cantor Rose for more information: cantorannie@gmail.com. If you cannot attend this session, we invite you to the Thursday book club meeting on October 4 at Noon.
