“Origin” by Dan Brown

Join us for Shabbat services, which will include Rabbi Berman’s sermon on Dan Brown’s book “Origin.”

Like all of Brown’s blockbuster suspense thrillers, all based on religious historical themes, the current No. 1 bestseller is a compulsive page-turner. The fact that the narrative is evocatively set in places that many CRT members have visited together, from the Great Synagogue of Budapest to the Royal Palace in Madrid and Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, makes it all the more vivid and engaging for us. We will consider the basic premise of the possibility that any scientific discovery could conceivably threaten traditional religion, which is one of Brown’s common obsessions.
