Join Rabbi Dan Ain as he hosts Father Jim Martin, author of The New York Times bestseller The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything and the "official chaplain of 'The Colbert Report'" for a fun and unorthodox conversation about faith and humor in today’s world.
Drinks will be served starting at 7 pm with a delicious meal prepared by the chefs at the Randolph Brooklyn to follow. Jews, Catholics, believers and non-believers—all are welcome! If you have any questions, feel free to email Alex Willick.
Watch Father Martin and Stephen Colbert discuss Jesus' sense of humor:
The Rev. James Martin, S.J., is a Jesuit priest, author and culture editor of America, the national Catholic magazine. He was born in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Business in 1982, where he received a bachelor's degree in finance (B.S. Econ.). After working for six years in corporate finance with General Electric Co. in New York and Connecticut, he entered the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) in 1988. Besides his editorial, publishing and media work, Father Martin conducts seminars and retreats around the country, and assists on Sundays at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola in New York City.
Rabbi Dan Ain is part preacher, part philosopher, part interviewer and provocateur. He finds holiness in honest conversation, in the spaces where people can say what they really think and allow others to do the same.
For the past decade, Rabbi Dan has been creating opportunities and contexts for these interactions – hosting Friday Night Dinners with comedians and cosmologists, klezmer brunches with artists and analysts, appearing on Sunday morning TV and in private apartments with groups of close friends looking for a way to talk about God on their own terms. He encourages conversations that are sometimes funny, sometimes challenging, sometimes sacred and sometimes profane.
Rabbi Dan lives in Brooklyn with his wife Alana Joblin Ain and their daughter, Autumn Prayer. Find him on Twitter at @rabbidan.
