Richard Koral: ‘Can I Be Your Friend? The Qualities of Friendship’

By September 18, 2022 No Comments

Friendship is the noble expression of care, mutuality, loyalty, appreciation and trust – all the highest qualities that a person can muster.  Can I do it for you? Can you do it for me?

Richard holds degrees from New York University and New York Law School, and a Doctor of Ministry in interfaith pastoral counseling from the Hebrew Union College. He is the Leader Consultant to the Social Service Board and numerous committees in the Society. Active with the American Ethical Union, Richard served on its Board as president from 2012 to 2015.

Sunday Platform is our most important and long-standing community event. These gatherings educate, stimulate personal growth, inspire reflection and action, and strengthen our community. Sunday meetings begin with music, followed by greetings and a talk given by a Society Leader, member, or guest.  Platforms cover a variety of topics that reflect current events, pressing social issues, and Humanist philosophy. Each Sunday meeting is followed by a luncheon and social hour.
