Rabbi Sharon Brous

“It’s Time to Reclaim Religion”

 

Our next TED talk is a very timely talk by Rabbi Sharon Brous, entitled “It’s Time to Reclaim Religion.” At a moment when the world seems to be spinning out of control, religion might feel irrelevant -- or like part of the problem. But Sharon believes we can reinvent religion to meet the needs of modern life. In this impassioned talk, she shares four principles of a revitalized religious practice, and she offers faith of all kinds as a hopeful counter-narrative to the numbing realities of violence, extremism and pessimism.

 

Sharon is a leading voice in reanimating religious life in America, working to develop a spiritual roadmap for soulful, multi-faith justice work.  Based in Los Angeles, she is the senior and founding rabbi of IKAR, a community built in 2004 that has become a model for Jewish revitalization in the US and beyond. IKAR’s goal is to reinvigorate Jewish religious and spiritual practice, inspiring people of faith to reclaim a moral and prophetic voice in counter-testimony to the small-minded extremism now prevalent in so many religious communities. IKAR quickly became one of the fastest growing and most influential Jewish congregations in the country, and it's widely credited with sparking a rethinking of religious life in a time of unprecedented disaffection and declining affiliation.

 

In 2008, Sharon was the youngest person on the Newsweek/Daily Beast list of the most influential Rabbis in America, and in 2013 she was named the list’s most influential rabbi.

 

We hope you can join us for a very timely talk, not just for the Jewish religion, but for all religions and atheists.

 

 

TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design, and the TED talks feature experts in a variety of fields who present unique ways of looking at their respective fields of expertise.

 

Everyone is welcome to these free sessions.

 

A discussion will take place after the lecture.

Over a twenty-five year career at his family's 43,000-employee, century-old business, Day & Zimmermann, Bill has held a number of leadership and executive roles, including managing a $350 million P&L, launching multiple enterprise-wide transformation initiatives, and representing the company locally, nationally and internationally. As a third-generation owner, he has a rare and personal view of the complex human dynamics behind large multi-generation family businesses.

Bill speaks and writes regularly about leadership, relationships, and family business using his proprietary, data-driven methodology, Familytics®. He recently published Our Way, a biography on his father and his family, which The Philadelphia Inquirer calls, “a transgenerational saga...drama and loss alongside triumph and growth...an argument that it’s possible to succeed at work and family, with all the stress.” Our Way won the Gold Award from the Nonfiction Authors Association. Bill has published business and literary articles and blogs, and produced an award-winning feature film about human relationships. He has a second non-fiction book project underway. He teaches classes at Wharton on family business and in high school on non-fiction writing.

Bill chairs the board of The Haverford School, one of the largest independent schools in the United States, and he sits on the advisory boards of Select Greater Philadelphia, Military Veteran Partners, and Quake Media. He has previously chaired the American Staffing Association, which supports the $150 billion US staffing industry, as well as served on the boards of Council for Relationships and Defense Support Services, LLC. He invests in and advises digital, technology and entertainment ventures. Bill holds a BA from Duke and an MBA from Wharton. He enjoys playing guitar, songwriting, cooking and fishing.

He and his family live outside Philadelphia.
