Spalding’s 2015 Keenan Lecture will focus on religion, sustainability

Spalding University’s 2015 Keenan Lecture will be presented by Rabbi Natan Margalit, president of Organic Torah, at 7 p.m. on April 23 in the Egan Leadership Center’s Troutman Lectorium, 901 S. Fourth St.

The lecture will focus on the role of religion in overcoming “the present environmental crisis,” a press release from Spalding said.

The integration of Jewish tradition in the current sustainability movement also is the focus of Organic Torah, according to the non-profit’s website.

The Keenan Lecture was established in 1982 in memory of Sister of Charity of Nazareth Mary Emily Keenan who taught religious studies and classical languages at Spalding for 50 years.

The event is free and open to the public. Complimentary parking is available in Spalding lots off Third, Fourth and Breckinridge streets.
