LLL Speaker Brunch: Belief in God

Are Jews Giving Up On God: What do we believe? Do we believe?

Mark Dov Shapiro, Rabbi Emeritus Sinai Temple Springfield, MA

Several years ago our visiting scholar invited his congregation to participate in a survey on God.  Over 300 responded to an online survey discussing their beliefs, their questions about God and prayer, their concerns, doubts, and affirmations. 

Rabbi Shapiro will share the results of the survey using PowerPoint and invite those present to respond.  Using SurveyMonkey, we may also be able to do a mini-survey of Kol Haverim congregants and compare our survey results to those of Sinai Temple. 

SURVEY ON BELIEF IN GOD CAN BE FOUND  HERE.  Please take 10 minutes to provide input for our presentation and discussion by May 7th.

Rabbi Mark Dov Shapiro has served Sinai Temple for 28 years.  He published the results of the God Survey in Reform Judaism Magazine.  He is also the writer of Gates of Shabbat, a book outlining the possibilities of Shabbat for Reform Jews.  Currently, he is involved in a number of social justice initiatives in Springfield.  He is also Rabbi in Residence at the Episcopal Cathedral of Springfield!
