The God Squad

Monsignor Hartman and Rabbi Gellman, two of America’s best known and best loved clergymen, are The God Squad. Their many lectures around the country appeal to huge crowds of people from all faiths, drawn by their deep friendship, their absolutely unique blend of humor and pathos, and their simple message that, at this stage of our cultural and religious history, we know enough about how we are different and not enough about how we are the same. The authenticity and power of this message of interfaith harmony comes in great measure from the fact that they are not media figures, but working clergymen.
