What is the genius of religion and faith? Can religion claim itself as the source of morality and moral behavior?

The archbishop of New York is joined by Rabbi Peter J. Rubinstein, 92nd Street Y’s director of Jewish community and the Bronfman Center for Jewish Life, to explore the moral aspects and traits of the genius of religion, such as generosity, curiosity and duty. They’ll look at how individuals such as Mother Teresa, Elie Wiesel, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Gandhi have inspired and harnessed the power of communities for good, and explore how the great partnerships between faiths can heal our world.
