Why an afternoon at Mercury Studios has led a liberal NY rabbi to reconsider how different we actually are

On Thursday, Glenn hosted a small dinner at Mercury Studios for friends of varying backgrounds. From titans of Silicon Valley to men of faith, Glenn gathered a group of strange bedfellows to discuss the principles that have the power to unite people of all backgrounds.

Rabbi Irwin Kula was one of the people who attended the dinner. On Thursday’s radio program Kula explained that, as a New York Jew, he was initially skeptical to meet Glenn, but the men have become fast friends. On radio this morning, Kula called in on his way to the airport to discuss the transformative experience his time at Mercury Studios proved to be.

“I feel that my body, mind, heart, and soul we were touched yesterday, Glenn,” Kula said. “I actually don’t know what happened. And I’m a little scared, actually, because it’s one thing to, you know, teach your wisdom, it’s another thing to have your wisdom blown into you… You’re never going to invite me again because I’m not being very articulate right now, but I think that yesterday was a transforming day.”

One of the reasons the Rabbi was initially reluctant to meet with Glenn was because he felt they came at things from two very different angles and spoke two entirely different languages. As it turns out, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Much like Glenn has been talking about lately, the labels we use to identify ourselves or the words we use superficially divide us. But once you move past those things, we actually have a lot in common.

“We use this language and these words. We use words like religious and secular and atheist and believer and communist and socialist and capitalist and liberal and conservative and libertarian,” Kula explained. “We use these words and the words actually block us from looking into someone’s eyes and saying, ‘What are their real fears? What are their real hopes? What is he really saying behind those words?’ And the words block our ability to actually do what we need to do: Live together and build together. I know we need words. I’m a wordsmith like you are. You’re amazing with words. But we also know that sometimes the words block the very experience of understanding.”

After having the opportunity to spend several hours with Glenn and his staff, Kula realized how inherently good people are.

“Maybe because I spent eight hours in the most amazing aesthetic and beautiful place that I’ve been in so long. Maybe it’s because every single person I interacted with in your office was so unbelievably human. There was no posturing, no positioning… People were genuinely nice. People said hello… We can do this. We have to somehow transcend these boxes and labels that are only products of our fear,” he said. “And you know… I don’t speak this way in public because I’m scared because a whole part of my community won’t listen to me. I think these words are placed by demons who want us to not actually connect by heart and mind and we have to actually get past that.”

Glenn asked Kula how he thinks his community on the Upper West Side of Manhattan will respond to the various interviews he did over the last couple of days. While he can’t say with certainty that he will not face some backlash, he is determined to continue to work on finding common ground and finding solutions to the problems that face this country.

“I’m nervous… I don’t know what’s going to happen because I have always known the most important thing is to listen to the other side. But what struck me yesterday is: I wasn’t sure there is another side,” Kula said. “We may disagree about how we got here and who is exactly to blame. And we may use different words. But what was unbelievably awe producing for me – and my body is tingling, my knees are shaking, Glenn. This is where we are. This is not a joke where we are right now.”

“The only way we’ll have new solutions is talking with people with whom we disagree and then small, small living laboratories,” he continued. “I want to know what’s happening in Texas… and we have to look at Montana, and the Lower East Side of New York, and in Cincinnati. There are no big grand final solutions that will solve everything. In the end yesterday, I [no longer] know what was the other side.”

Ultimately, both Glenn and Kula agree that incredible can happen and will happen if we continue to come together.

“God bless you. Thank you,” Glenn concluded. “This is why you talk to the other side. This is why you reach out to people who disagree with you. Miracles are coming and miracles are happening.”

    Well, I am one New York Jew, who when I heard Glenn speak on his radio program on WOR in New York, which in a moment of clarity carried Glenn’s program, related to Glenn immediately and I felt Glenn was speaking for me. It’s the Rabbi who I was wary of. I’m glad the Rabbi has come to his moment of clarity. When I hear others where I live speak of Glenn, what they say does not match up with the man I hear every day. It makes me wonder where are they getting this stuff and why are they so incurious to seek the truth. I know this, fear makes people do evil things.

    If only more men and women would come together in love and share their hearts like Glenn and Rabbi Kula; it happened because they both believe in God and practice the presence of His love listening and hearing each others heart. It certainly is a hopeful sign when two such men find common ground and respect each others views. It would be good if Glenn could keep this going and bring others together, a great example for others to follow.

    Christians everywhere need to KNOW that The Bible is a series of books, written by Jews, written to Jews, ABOUT A JEW!!!

  • BIGBADBOB99 .

    66 books books to be exact and it was written by God through men to all people Jew and Gentile about the history of the world beginning to end and the love of God toward us by coming into this world himself as his son, the second part of the trinity, to take the punishment for our sins so that we all may know God and give him glory and forever be with him and never die! and yes he chose the people of Israel to do his will through and come into this evil world. If it were another you would hate them and not the Jews such is Satan’s

    Unfortunately, Glenn’s mental state seems to be deteriorating. His grand delusions are getting the best of him and it’s showing.

  • CGrove

    Yet Glenn falsely accused a Saudi student of terror ties based on his ethnicity. Now he’s got a court date in his future. Face it, Glenn and the religious right view Islam as the religion of Satan. BlueMN is right too. This little love fest of Glenn’s does not change the hard cold fact that his camp has deep-seated hatred of outsiders. Glenn has stated several times that if you don’t believe as he does, you’re on the side of supernatural EVIL.

  • CGrove

    There’s no evidence to support any of that narrative.

    Robert, do you still believe the things Glenn said about the Saudi national he blamed for the Boston Marathon bombing? What about the other conspiracies Glenn cooked up when he was busy “connecting the dots?”

  • CGrove

    The supernatural realm populated with demons, angels, ghosts, spirits, witches, god(s) etc. that primitive goat-herding men imagined is nonsense. The very concept of “magic” is silly. There are things we don’t understand yet, but once we do, they become part of our reality. Glenn’s frustration originates with a belief that a divine entity is in charge of his life and using him for great purposes. That kind of delusional thinking is dangerous and is an unhealthy path to walk. I truly feel sorry for him. He has a lot of bad influences surrounding him and he’s all wrapped up in their false ideas. It seems to be driving him nuts. It’s like trying to chase down the end of a rainbow to get that pot of gold. It’s all a fruitless and frustrating fantasy.

  • CGrove

    See the little dot in the picture below? That’s Earth. Glenn and the Rabbi both believe they have a special connection to a divine entity they credit for creating the Universe and the tiny blue dot we live on. They both think they’re divinely chosen and that they’re both very special in the eyes of that GOD. There’s nothing humble about someone who harbors thoughts like that.

  • CGrove

    That dot is Earth.

    Spiritual laws are not based on physical laws. In fact, physical events happen to explain & foretell spiritual events. the size of the physical entity does not necessarily equal the importance of the beings housed on it. YOU are not a physical being having a spiritual experience (or perhaps trying hard to avoid having a spiritual experience!)— you are a spiritual being having a temporary physical experience,

I don’t always agree with everyone’s posts, but if I find them as radically different and wrong as you seem to view them, I go elsewhere. Why is it so hard for you to accept that maybe they had a moment of enlightenment and found time to listen to each other’s views and respect them and accept them without any reservations? I respect Glenn’s attempt in trying to change our views for the better. Glenn and his group are not hurting anyone and trying with all their might to spread a light in the world. I prefer the light over your darkness and hope that one day you will see it too.

    God has never asked people to believe in the magical. Quite the contrary – He is the advocate of natural law by which we can understand the rational basis of creation and morality. It is the social ‘scientists’ and civil ‘engineers’ who endlessly foist fantasies upon us and enjoin us to ignore the ‘man behind the curtain.” Many men and women who were sincere and successful in spiritually and materially helping mankind were religious. You do not have to agree with their beliefs, but your denigration and dismissal of their very real accomplishments is disingenuous and undermines your credibility.

    Christians think that every one is very special in the eyes of God. You are included. Yes – has not God created an amazing Universe for us? Are we not allotted ample room to learn and grow? He loves us all immensely.

  • shande

    That will never happen as long as the left continues to encourage people to love their heritage more than the United States. We are not a “melting pot” anymore we have become a salad bowl. You can’t melt into different pots. The only thing that united us was being American, but after years of America bashing and discouraging people to assimilate, we have more hate then ever before. Every group dislikes the other group because they are different. Our commonality is gone. It would be different if people were more alike, but it’s not allowed any longer.

  • Alan Bean

    Believe that if you wish. That is your prerogative.

  • Will

    There are mountains of evidence. That one’s worldview is of a ‘pure luck origin of man’, secular humanist, slant. All the evidence of creation by a God must be discarded out of hand, to hold onto the worldview. If any evidence is examined, that doesn’t fit that prevailing worldview, is actually seen as valid, it produces a condition of cognitive dissonance in the examiner. When all that is taught to an individual comes from the secular humanist religion, a conversion to (what I call) right thinking is very baffling and at times downright painful. If You doubt but think possibly that my thinking may have validity, ask God, “God, if you really exist and want me to believe these things that seem as fairytales, make me know it and lead me to You”. It seems so simplistic as to lack good sense, but having prayed to God a similar prayer, some 35 years ago after, by my own wisdom, I had lost my family and fortune and had made a mess of my life and wanted to fix it. I have made that walk on my own and can at least claim an orderly life with an eternal future, no matter what other men may do.

  • Will

    Wrong on every assumption. The court date is all you got right. The religion of secular humanism produces this seething hatred of decency that you express. ALL false religions, are of Satan. God will take care of the judgment of them. If you fail to recognize that supernatural evil exists, You are in great danger of becoming a victim of it. As for Mormanism. I have grave doubts. Christ came to save sinners. Islam fails to give Jesus the status that he holds, and calls him one of the prophets. He was either a liar, a lunatic or the son of the living God. Not a good teacher or a prophet. Islam is a deadly false religion, man-made and crooked it all it’s ways.

  • Will

    It’s difficult to believe in something that you haven’t experienced. But just because you haven’t experienced it, doesn’t mean that it’s not real. I thought like you most of my life until supernatural struck me in the face. It took several hits before I could accept it. I totally understand those that I thought were foolish, for now I stand with them. I an grateful for this opportunity. Would have missed so much without those amazing experiences. Hope you get a chance like me.

    Reality and reason are proven to work best, and I’ll be staying on that path. The supernatural is a delusion. It doesn’t exist.

  • SerfsUp

    There are no gods. Primitive people imagined them to fill the void left by their ignorance. It’s no longer necessary to play pretend.

  • SerfsUp

    Reason is not darkness. Pretending the supernatural is real and indulging in fantasies is however. Glenn is misleading a lot of gullible people and he’s tearing himself up with his delusional ideas as well. He needs to reconnect with reality. His delusion about a god having special plans just for him that Glenn can’t quite figure out is driving him batty. It’s very unhealthy and it’s painful to see him suffer. Too bad all those LDS cultists have so much influence over him. It’s tragic.

  • SerfsUp

    You’re pretending. There’s no evidence to support the primitive ideas about the supernatural that originated in the minds of men in the Middle East thousands of years ago. There never was.

  • SerfsUp

    So some primitive goat-herding men created the narrative you’re consumed by thousands of years ago and you cling to their ideas without any evidence to support them. That’s not healthy behavior. Please be careful. It’s always amazing to see women, who are treated like second class citizens in all religious writings (which is a dead giveaway that they were written by men) allow themselves to be taken in by these old myths. It’s very sad.

  • SerfsUp

    You’re a very angry person. I had qualms about replying to your post because for you, in the words of that great American Hillary Clinton, “at this point, what difference does it make”? You don’t believe in God? How about this, if there is no God, then man takes His place, and man is short-sighted, self-centered, and mediocre. And those are the good guys. Since there is no sensate proof of God’s existence, it is best for man to believe in God, otherwise man takes His place and we are truly lost. As to what you posted to me directly, who says the Saudi national is innocent? The State Department? They still insist that the military operation in Benghazi came from a protest over a video by an obscure Koptic Christian man, whose people are being slaughtered in the Middle East by Muslims; a man of no status, money, power or standing. You don’t think these two young men were part of a terror cell? You don’t think that the Boston Marathon bombing was totally preventable? If you don’t, you have your head up your butt. Lastly, to nitpick about an event that happened 21 months ago is missing the whole point of what Glenn Beck or I am about. And if I answered what you wrote in detail, you’d just nitpick on something else and make adhominem attacks.

    It’s unreasonable to believe that someone who is involved in terror plots would sue for defamation in an American court if that person was guilty! Of course he’s innocent. Even Glenn knows it at this point.

    The facts have shown your concern (it is best for man to believe in God, otherwise man takes His place and we are truly lost) to be unfounded. Countries like Sweden have a small percentage of religious believers yet they have peaceful societies of law abiding people. No, there’s really no need to cling to primitive superstitious beliefs.

    If Sweden is so wonderful, why does its people consistently lead the world in suicides. I love it when contrarians choose small homogeneous countries and apply it to the world at large. What, Sweden has a population of 2 million people that has a small economy dependent on larger countries for its survival. Iceland is a similar sized country that is bankrupt. How does either country prove your point? Making blanket statements that facts don’t bear your opposition’s point is not persuasive argument. Europe as a whole has an aging population with a moribund economy and is in a general malaise with countries throughout the continent facing bankruptcy and unrest. You don’t think a falling away from God has something to do with that? I do. As Obama pulls the U.S. away from a leadership role in the world, Godless Russia and China fill in the void. You don’t have a problem with that? I do. As far as the Saudi is concerned, anyone could sue in our country, it doesn’t mean he would be successful and believe me he wouldn’t be. You’re talking about a guy protected by our government. He’s connected, the First Lady visited with him. The story behind the bombing is being covered up, as is Benghazi, as is Fast and Furious, as is the IRS scandal, as will be the VA scandal, as will be this recent trade of prisoners. Glenn is not talking about conspiracies, he’s talking about the policies and actions of the current administration. I listen to the guy every day. He hasn’t back down on anything, but when the government covers up, you are going to hear bupkis.

    Your paranoid, false beliefs are one of the reasons this defamation case needs to go forward. Beck has you and many other gullible nonthinking people believing all kinds of lies and distortions. The case has a lot of merit according to many legal experts, so you best prepare yourself for some bitter disappointment when Beck loses.

  • Robert Starkand

    What you write is just false. You’re brainwashed. That’s why I had qualms about answering your post. The Saudi national comes from a connected family. He wasn’t a victim of the bombing, he was an associate of the two brothers. You have to discover the truth for yourself. Glenn Beck never made any charges, he just had questions about the Saudi national’s involvement with the two brother bombers. There will be no trial for defamation. There will be a continued coverup of the Boston Marathon bombing. If you have nothing more than opprobrious attacks why bother?

  • SerfsUp

    It’s really interesting that you believe:

    “The Saudi national comes from a connected family.” FALSE. He’s here on a Saudi scholarship. His family is not wealthy.

    “He wasn’t a victim of the bombing, he was an associate of the two brothers.” FALSE. He was a victim. His legs were wounded with shrapnel. His hearing was damaged. He was sprayed with the blood of other victims and was surrounded by body parts after the blast. All of that is on the police report. He was cleared by all top law enforcement officials and had no connection with the Tsarnaev brothers at all.

    “Glenn Beck never made any charges” FALSE One example of proof is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=duXO38rCFGQ “he is a bad, bad, bad man”

    “There will be no trial for defamation” FALSE unless Beck’s legal team can work out a settlement instead of a trial, which seems highly unlikely because the case has merit.

    “There will be a continued coverup of the Boston Marathon bombing” FALSE. Nothing is being covered up and it never was. Beck’s conspiracy theory was completely wrong.

    Your false beliefs, which are directly a result of Glenn Beck’s false accusations, are a good reason for this lawsuit to be tried in a court of law. BTW, all of this information is freely available on the web. There are a number of videos of Glenn Beck agitating his audience against the Saudi student too. Face it. Glenn’s conspiracy isn’t worth $ h i t.

  • Robert Starkand

    I’m glad you posted Glenn’s spot from the You Tube, I invite everyone to watch it. However, I never heard of any defamation suit against Glenn until you brought it up. The reason I am fully confident that there will be no trial is that it is a civil suit where full discovery must take place, and every thing about this young man from Saudi Arabia would be put on a public court record. I don’t think this young man, his family, his government, our government wants that to happen so it won’t. You heard Glenn, this young man was protected by our government and deported and we never heard a word about him again. If there was to be such a suit don’t you think the media would be all over it and this young man would be put out in front in order to destroy Glenn Beck’s credibility, but that hasn’t happened. Its preposterous to think that the Boston Marathon bombing was anything but the result of a criminal conspiracy. This wasn’t a natural occurring event. People got together to plan it and execute it. The bombing was a murderous terrorist act, and the planning of it was a conspiracy.

    I could see from what you showed me that there is a law suit filed two months ago. That would be a good reason why I hadn’t heard of it before. It would be foolish for Glenn or anyone to say anything publicly about a pending lawsuit right away, and from what you showed me, I don’t even know if Glenn has been served. We’ll see how this plays out.

    They’ve all been served. Someone else posted this graphic. Check it out by clicking on it. Served April 2nd. Returned April 14. Beck’s connecting the dots skills failed him.

    We’ll see how it plays out. As the clip you posted shows, Glenn relied on what he says are impeccable sources. Whether the Saudi national was deported or not, I don’t think either of us knows. The bombing occurred on 9/11/2012, the law suit was filed on 3/28/2014. Bit of a gap there. To say there was no conspiracy is obviously incorrect, because the planning of the bombing is the conspiracy. As the case develops and discovery takes place, we will all know a lot more because court records are public. Whether this law suit merely theatre or for real, we’ll see.

    I consider it arrogant to assume that one generation of people is smarter, more knowledgeable, or advanced simple by virtue of it being your generation. I do not think that you know much about the life spans, science or hygiene of ancient people. I would like to see you build a temple, a pyramid or even a house with the tools they had. I would love to see you align them perfectly with astronomical events. Try writing something that people want to read and study for thousands of years. As to our generation as a whole – how many can read on a proficient level. I am a teacher and I will tell you – very few. How many think that math is hard and confusing? How many cannot figure out where babies come from and manage not to procreate unintentionally, nor can be convinced not to savagely kill the unintentional baby? For that matter, how many cannot even figure out the simplest biological facts of gender and human reproduction? How many people are infested with easily avoidable diseases? How many ‘modern scientists” are absolutely fossilized in institutionalized theories and call names like a delinquent when inconvenient new evidences knock at the bolted doors and shuttered windows of their ivory towers? How about the numbers of people who spend all of their time fantasizing about witches, wizards and vampires, etc. instead of engaging in skills that will serve them and others? Honestly, I do not see how superior our “modern” world is. …and reasonably, I do see how passages in the Bible, written by ancient, responsible, self-supporting, family people, who lived close to and understood nature and human nature have a lot to say about morality, government, liberty, even hygiene to people who are slipping into debauchery and totalitarian government, again. Reasonably, great scholars and scientists and statesmen and educators and philanthropists, etc., whose good works have spoken louder than words, have recommended to me the words and ideas of these “primitive shepherds.” I recommend them to you.
