Writings of ‘When Bad Things Happen to Good People’ author will be topic of monthly discussion

Rabbi Harold Kushner Rabbi Harold Kushner A series of monthly book discussions on the writings of Rabbi Harold Kushner – perhaps best known for his book When Bad Things Happen to Good People – will be facilitated by Rabbi Howard Siegel of Congregation Kol Ami at the Barnes & Noble bookstore in Carrollwood, 11802 N. Dale Mabry Hwy. The talks will be held once a month on Sundays from 7-8:30 p.m. from January through April. A different book by Kushner will be discussed, over coffee, at each meeting.

According to Rabbi Siegel, Rabbi Kushner’s writings have had a profound effect on the non-Orthodox Jewish community. “Kushner uses his books to convey a “limited theology,” meaning maybe God can’t do everything. Perhaps we need to re-understand what we mean by omnipotence and omnipresence,” he said.

The series is open to all in the community and there is no charge to participate. The Carrollwood bookstore is offering discounted pricing on the four books that will be discussed.

The book discussion schedule is:

• Sunday, Jan. 13: When Bad Things Happen to Good People

• Sunday, Feb. 10 : How Good Do We Have To Be? A New Understanding of Guilt & Forgiveness

Sunday, March 24: The Lord Is My Shepherd – Healing Wisdom of the 23rd Psalm

• Sunday, April 28: When All You’ve Ever Wanted Isn’t Enough – The Search For A Life That Matters

For more information, call Kol Ami at (813) 962-6338.
