In the era of the Third Great Awakening when the Free Religious Association was formed around such moral causes as the abolition of slavery and women’s suffrage, a 24-year-old reformed Rabbi, Felix Adler, spoke out: “There is a great and crying evil in modern society… It is that narrowness of vision which shuts out the wider vistas of the soul… where the roots of private virtue are diseased, the fruit of public probity cannot but be corrupt.”
146 years after the founding Platform of Ethical Culture, members, friends and guests will gather from societies across the country to review the major accomplishments of the ethical movement and to share personal reflections about “How We Got Here”.
There will be an informal interview of 5 or 7 members, followed by breakout groups where members and guests can participate with their own stories and connections.
The Platform will highlight a number of musicians in the Ethical Culture movement.
