Richard Dawkins Interviews Humanistic Rabbi Tamara Kolton

Richard Dawkins Interviews Humanistic Rabbi Tamara Kolton January 13, 2012

Once again, thank you to all of you who sent me words of encouragement.  I’m happy that this blog is of interest to so many people.

Now back to business!

One of the things that I really benefit from as a member of the Association of Humanistic Rabbis is the collegiality of wonderful colleagues like Tamara Kolton, rabbi of the Birmingham Temple in suburban Detroit.  When Prof. Richard Dawkins was on his most recent book tour, he stopped there and, in addition to delivering his lecture, he found time to interview Rabbi Kolton.

It’s a wonderful conversation between two rationalists who both encourage critical thinking and reason in their disparate fields.  Though I might have answered his questions a little differently, I love the poetry of her answers.  Her congregation is very fortunate to have her.
