Randolph-Macon College will host An Evening with Rabbi Aryeh Spero on October 22,
2012 at 7:00 p.m. in Blackwell Auditorium, R-MC Center for the Performing Arts.
Rabbi Spero will discuss why capitalism can be considered a moral system with virtuous
facets. He is president of Caucus For America and the author of Push Back: Reclaiming
the American Judeo-Christian Spirit (Evergreen Press, 2012).
Rabbi Spero has been invited to inform policy-makers, candidates, and elected officials
regarding the moral and religious dimensions of policies and legislation under consideration.
His articles have appeared in major publications, including the Wall Street Journal
and National Review, and he is a frequent guest on national television
and radio programs including National Public Radio (NPR).
Rabbi Spero served congregations as a pulpit rabbi in Ohio, Manhattan and Long Island.
He hosted “Talking Sense,” a radio show heard on WWDJ, WSNR and WEVD in the New
York metropolitan region. He also hosted a nightly program on Rightalk and is known
for his lively and thought-provoking "One Minute Commentaries" on N.Y.C. radio.
Rabbi Spero created his well-known signature slogans: "I'm Battling for the Soul
of America" and "It's Your Country...Stand Up for It!"
This lecture is sponsored by the BB&T Moral Foundations of Capitalism Program
