With the publication of the Humanist Manifesto (http://americanhumanist.org/Humanism/Humanist_Manifesto_I) in 1933, modern Humanism was born. Signers of the manifesto included a number of intellectuals and religious leaders. Most of the latter were Unitarian ministers. The document boldly proclaimed “the time has passed for theism”. In subsequent years, non-theistic Humanism became a dominant influence on the Unitarian Universalism (UU). The UU Humanists Association (http://www.huumanists.org) is dedicated to keeping Humanist ideals strong within the denomination and insuring those who identify as non-believers, atheists, agnostics, and humanists find a welcoming home within Unitarian Universalism. The Humanists and Non-Theists of the UU Society of San Francisco, is a local San Francisco group that sponsors speakers, discussions, potlucks, parties and an annual Darwin Day event featuring a scientific lecture and a luncheon. We invite you to check out some of our activities whether you are a Unitarian Universalist or would like to learn more about UU Humanism.
Emanuel Jolish will introduce two opposing and conflicting narratives of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. The intent is to focus on the crux of the conflict rather than a litany of dates and events. The presentation will take about 30 minutes to be followed by Q and A.
Emanuel is a U.S. trained psychologist with 20 years of clinical experience. He was born in Germany, raised in Israel, and is a student of the Middle East Conflict.
The presentation will start at 12:30 in the CHAPEL. Sandwiches will be available for purchase. Everyone is welcome.
