What does religion have to do with our great nation- the United States of America? And what does it mean for the upcoming 2012 election? Senator and former Vice-Presidential candiate Joe Lieberman explains the role of religion in the founding of this country and how religious tolerance is a fundamental and significant American principle whose value continues on into the new century.
Every year, on the occasion of the passing of Rabbi Gershon Jacobson, the founder and Editor-in-Chief of the Algemeiner, a noted politician, Jewish leader or scholar delivers a lecture. Senator Lieberman was the keynote speaker at the 2011 Gershon Jacobson Annual Lecture. The lecture is hosted by the Gershon Jacobson Foundation and the Algemeiner. The foundation serves as a valiant media voice addressing the most compelling issues of our time, with vision, integrity and moral clarity, informed by 4000 years of Jewish experience and wisdom.
