The story of Job is one of unjust things happening to a good man. Yet after losing everything, Job – confused, angry, and questioning God – refuses to reject his faith. However, he does challenges some central aspects of it. Don’t miss this examination of the questions raised by Job’s experience, questions that have challenged wisdom seekers and worshippers for centuries. What kind of God permits such bad things to happen to good people? Why does God test loyal followers? Can a truly good God be all-powerful?

Rabbi Harold Kushner -- The Book of Job: When Bad Things Happen to a Good Person -- Bal Harbour Shops
The story of Job is one of unjust things happening to a good man. Yet after losing everything, Job—though confused, angry, and questioning God—refuses to reject his faith, although he challenges some central aspects of it. Rigorous and insightful yet deeply affecting, The Book of Job (Schocken, $24) is balm for a distressed age—and Rabbi Harold S. Kushner's most important book since When Bad Things Happen to Good People. Rooted in the text, the critical tradition that surrounds it, and the author's own profoundly moral thinking, Kushner's study gives us The Book of Job as a touchstone for our time. Taking lessons from historical and personal tragedy, Kushner teaches us about what can and cannot be controlled, about the power of faith when all seems dark, and about our ability to find God. FREE TICKETS are required for this event, available at Books & Books in Coral Gables, Miami Beach and Bal Harbour Shops, while supplies last!

18th Annual Book Festival of the MJCCA: Harold Kushner
Harold Kushner diskuterar Conquering Fear: Living Boldly in an Uncertain World.
Best-selling author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People has written a book about fear and how to overcome it. Fear, which is an inescapable component of life, comes in many guises – fear of unemployment; fear of aging, illness, losing beauty; fear of a terrorist attack or natural disaster. In uncertain times, coping with these fears can be especially challenging. In this hopeful book, Rabbi Kushner teaches us to confront, master, and even embrace fear for a more fulfilling life. Drawing on the teachings of religious and secular literature and on the true stories of people who have faced their fears, Kushner helps us to see that fear can present us with opportunities – to connect with our emotions, rethink our values, and change our lives, and the world, for the better.
