The Matrix and the Maharal: the new Jewish philosophy of Rav Shagar

Miriam Feldmann Kaye 

Orange 14

This philosophical class will examine the changing concept of truth in modern and postmodern Jewish thought. We will explore an original approach to the deep challenges that this role of truth presents for religion; that of the relatively new Israeli scholar Rav Shagar (1947-2007).

Prayer laboratory

Naftali Moses 

Red 8

To whom do we talk when we pray? For whom do we pray? Is joyful prayer the same as that born of dire need? We will spend a long session studying texts together and experimenting with applying what we learned from them in order to discover deeper ways of addressing the Divine using traditional liturgy.
