Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games triology takes us to a dystopian world where children are pitted against each other in a fight to the death, people in the Capitol region live a life of luxury with plenty of everything while people in every other part of Panem are violently oppressed and are starving.  We will look at some of the classics of Jewish philosophy especially Martin Buber, Abraham Joshua Heschel, and Mordechai Kaplan.  Where is God in the Hunger Games?  Does faith have a role in that society?  Be ready to discuss and debate!  (No background necessary)
