Dr. Dennis Dalton's Shabbat Morning Talk On "Gandhi's Relevance"

On Saturday, April 13, Dr. Dennis Dalton looked at Gandhi’s life and legacy, highlighting three pivotal moments that defined his journey: the Amritsar Massacre, his connections with those classified as peasants, and the development of civil disobedience in India.

Dr. Dalton shared personal anecdotes and historical accounts to illustrate Gandhi’s philosophy of non-violent resistance, which he believed could bring about social change even in the face of terrorism and violence.

He also discussed Gandhi’s unlikely path to leadership, how he turned disadvantages into advantages, and his belief in the power of non-violence to bring about social change.
