The Tower of Babel: People’s Choice or Public Nuisance?

Back by popular demand, University Synagogue's 12th Annual Biblical Trial Summons you to return as a Juror in this year’s compelling case.

Was building the Tower of Babel a rebellion against God?

Was it a power grab? God created people to inhabit the earth, but did not anticipate such abuse of power.

Join us to find out why the Tower was the last straw.

For the plaintiff or for the defendant? Join the jury and help render a verdict.

Watch the drama unfold! UCI Professor Oren Izenberg will introduce the story. Our legal eagles, Professor Laurie Levenson and Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, will present the evidence and argue the case in a thought-provoking and entertaining debate over the legal and ethical questions at stake. Finally, you, the jury, will decide this important biblical case.

ATTORNEYS OF RECORD: Professor Laurie Levenson, Loyola Law School; Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, UC Berkeley School of Law for the defense

PRESIDING JUDGE: The Hon. Richard Fybel, Associate Justice, 4th District Court of Appeals

PANELISTS: UCI Professor Oren Izenberg will be on hand to introduce the story.  
After submission of the “evidence,” join in a lively discussion, featuring Rabbi Arnold Rachlis, Dr. Jack Miles, UC Irvine Distinguished Professor Emeritus of English and Religious Studies and Rev. Dr. Sarah Halverson-Cano, Fairview Community Church, Costa Mesa.
