Rebecca Goldstein Discusses “36 Arguments for the Existence of God: A Work of Fiction” at the DCJCC Literary Festival

Washington Post Senior Book Editor Ron Charles talks with Rebecca Goldstein about her new book as the closing act of the DCJCC Literary Festival / photo taken by Rachel Mauro

As a concluding act to the Hyman S. & Freda Bernstein Jewish Literary Festival, Rebecca Goldstein addressed Ron Charles of Washington Post Book World and a packed theater audience Wednesday night about her current, humorously titled novel, “36 Arguments for the Existence of God: A Work of Fiction.”

Melding philosophy and strong characters, the book deals with the protagonist, Cass Seltzer, who hits the big leagues with a best-selling book on religious delusion, an offer to teach for Harvard, a successful mathematician girlfriend, and more. But he is also haunted by two great mentors—his former religion and philosophy instructor Jonas Elijah Klapper, and a math prodigy and rebbe’s son from a Hassidic sect Azarya.

Like Cass, Goldstein might be described as “an atheist with a soul”—she was raised as an Orthodox Jew and kept the traditions until her parents died as part of shalom bayit, peace in the house. Although she explained she can’t believe in Gd for “moral reasons” (reconciling the extent of human suffering with a divine being,) she treats religious communities with sympathy and temperance, both in this book and her previous novel, “Mazel,” which again focuses in part on the Hassidim.

In comparing religious communities to atheists, Goldstein drew interesting parallels between cathedrals and universities, and the religious apostle/disciples relationship versus the secular professor/grad student one. Everyone looks at that elevated, idolized sense they get from religious conviction, she said, and if they can’t find it in Gd, they find it elsewhere. But Goldstein is cautious about the nature of belief. As a philosopher, she takes hers rather seriously.

Goldstein ended by expressing gratitude that recent events like 9/11 have taken the religious debate out of philosophy classrooms and into the public square. Perhaps this is why “36 Arguments for the Existence of God: A Work of Fiction” is attractive to philosophers and lay people, and religious and atheists alike. With thought-provoking books like these, we can bridge gaps and grow as people.

This program was co-sponsored with Moment Magazine, celebrating its 35th anniversary. The DCJCC literary fest is officially over, but stay tuned for upcoming events through the Authors Out Loud program. Check out the Facebook page for more.

Literary Losses and Gains in Jewish DC

Graphic courtesy of ClipArtPal.com

Wednesday evening instead of going home, I spent a couple of hours at Politics and Prose. This was a momentous occasion for two reasons. First, a NaNoWriMo group was forming for serious (or perhaps crazy) writers in the Washington area. Secondly—and I know I risk being run out of town for this—I’d never been to DC’s famed, independent bookstore before. What can I say; being carless, I was a little afraid of the commute. :”> But when the NaNoWriMo group popped up, I knew I had to give it a go.

Turns out this week won’t just be remembered by me, but by Politics and Prose as well. Last Monday, bookstore cofounder Carla Cohen died at 74. You might have read the lengthy obituary in the Washington Post. The funeral was held Wednesday afternoon at Tifereth Israel and the store was even closed for a few hours before I got there.

Cohen was known as an enthusiastic salesperson, an avid reader and blunt with her opinions. My friend, Famin, reminisced about how she would attempt to talk people out of their purchases if she didn’t like a tome, as well as her zeal for bringing Indian writers to speak at the bookstore.

Even though I had never set foot in Politics and Prose before, I was very familiar with the place, having attended several readings offsite with Jewish authors. Even tomorrow at 7 pm, the bookstore is teaming up with Sixth & I to present David Grossman, lately author of “To The End of the Land.” DC-based Moment Magazine just featured a review of the novel; click here to read it.

Politics and Prose is also a sponsor of the upcoming DCJCC Hyman S. & Freda Bernstein Jewish Literary Festival. Click here to read my earlier promo for this event starting Oct. 17.

My thoughts and prayers are with Mrs. Cohen’s family, for this wonderful woman who bestowed so many literary gifts onto the Washington, DC community. May her memory always be for a blessing.
