“The War inside of us”, 4-5:30 PM

We live in a time of war. There is an ongoing war in Israel and in Ukraine as well as many other conflicts throughout the world ready to deteriorate into full military action. Many people see them as separate and different events yet there is a commonality to those confrontations making them mere parts of a bigger war occurring globally.

The war that we are witnessing is the eternal war of the Good and Evil, of essential truths against sophisticated lies. This war occurs on an individual level as well in terms of processing conflicting information and properly orienting our moral compass.

Presentation and discussion will be hosted by Oxana Katsov and Emil Silberman
