Video: Rabbi Shmuley Boteach and Christopher Hitchens Debate God

Last night the popular Rabbi Shmuley Boteach and full-throttled non-believer Christopher Hitchens debated the existence of God before a packed audience at the Y’s Kaufmann Concert Hall. Both have recent books to help make their case: God Is Not Great and The Portable Atheist by Hitchens, The Broken American Male: And How to Fix Him and Shalom in the Home by Boteach. It was a spirited and contentious talk to say the least and we have the video to prove it. In the clip above, Boteach offers his image of God while Hitchens is convinced that God is man-made. Neil Gillman, Jewish philosophy professor at the Jewish Theological Seminary, was the admirable moderator.

Early blog reviews are in at FishbowlNY and What Would Phoebe Do.

Update: Read the follow up email exchange between Boteach and Hitchens.

Update #2: Watch the FULL VERSION of the video.

Upcoming: State of Anti-Semitism Lecture with Noah Feldman: The U.S. and the Middle East—Where Do We Go From Here? and more lectures of Jewish Interest
