October 15, 2007: Rabbi Avi Orlow and the Reverend Gary Braun
To explore the state of spiritual life at the University, two campus ministers, Rabbi Avi Orlow of Hillel and the Rev. Gary Braun of the Catholic Student Center (CSC), will share their beliefs and guide an open discussion, "This I Believe: The State of Spiritual Life at Washington University," for the Assembly Series. Orlow and Braun encourage campus members to think about their own set of beliefs — religious, secular and anything in between — before the forum so there can be meaningful dialogue between the campus ministers and the students.
Orlow is the Rabbi of St. Louis Hillel, an organization that seeks to maximize opportunities for Jewish students to explore, celebrate and sanctify life in a Jewish way. Braun has directed the CSC, also called the Newman Center, since 1991. CSC, located at 6352 Forsyth Blvd., serves as a community not only for Catholic formation but also as a welcoming community for students of all faiths.
