This month the Baha’i will mark the Bicentenary Celebration of Birth of Bab. In the first segment, host Dr. Stan Bratton interviews Dennis Smith, of the Spiritual Assembly of Baha’i of Amherst, about this important celebration.

In this time of political division, contests are cast in terms of good versus evil. In the second segment, Dr. Stan Bratton speaks with Muarli Osuraman, a representative of Hinduism, about the meaning of good and evil and the Hindu festivals that celebrate the victory of good over evil.

In the third segment, Rabbi Alex Lazarus-Klein talks with Rabbi Jonathan Freirch about the meaning and commemoration of the Jewish high holy days.
