Strange Rites: New Religions for a Godless World–by Tara Isabella Burton 
Rabbi Brian Stoller 

Though affiliation with traditional religions like Judaism and Christianity is on the decline, research shows that modern Americans are still very much seeking spirituality and meaning in life. Sociologist Tara Isabella Burton argues that we are increasingly searching for this meaning in modern secular religions like politics, wellness, technology, the occult, and even Harry Potter fandom. We will discuss how Reform Judaism can and should adapt to meet the spiritual needs of today’s seekers. Please read the book in advance of the discussion.
