JR. on Finkorswim Radio to Discuss the Decline of Religion in America

JR. was a guest on Rabbi Eli Fink’s radio program Finkorswim Radio. He, Eli and Rabbi Daniel Korobkin discuss the decline of participation in organize religion in America – what causes it and what we as religious leaders can do about it.

Small ChurchThis week, I had the opportunity to join our friend, Rabbi Eliyahu Fink, on his podcast, Finkorswim Radio, to discuss the recently released Pew Research indicating the overall decline of participation in organized religious groups in America. Eli also invited on Rabbi Daniel Korobkin, whose insights I found particularly helpful.

The better I get to know Eli, the more struck I am by the similarities between Orthodox Judaism and Evangelical Christianity. Certainly our conversation illuminates the challenges and potentials of each faith. I think you’ll find it illuminating.

Listen to the whole episode here. Rabbi Korobkin and I join Eli about halfway through.
