Through a Buddhist Lens: Faith and Freedom in America

Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan

Click link below for full info and to get tickets: https://tricy.cl/2Bxob1J Description: Join us on Thursday, February 21 at JCC Manhattan for a meaningful evening with Duncan Ryuken Williams, a Soto Zen Buddhist priest and professor of religion, and award-winning writer Pico Iyer to celebrate Williams's new book, American Sutra: A Story of Faith and Freedom During the Second World War. The book tells the little-known story of how Japanese-American Buddhists fought to defend their faith and preserve religious freedom. Our discussion will explore questions of faith, devotion, identity, and resilience in the face of dislocation, loss, and uncertainty. Together we will investigate what it means to be an American today. Williams and Iyer, both contributing writers to Tricycle Magazine, will also touch upon the importance of upholding bedrock American values—religious freedom, tolerance, social and racial justice, and civil liberties—in our own historical moment.
