Philosophy Circle – OMJCC – Fall 2019

Rabbi Peretz Wolf-Prusan leads this Circle on My Teacher: David Hartman, Seeker of Truth: We are coming upon the seventh year since the passing of Rabbi David Hartman (9/11/1931 – 2/10/2013), which does not seem possible because I hear his voice in my head nearly every day. He was one of the most creative Jewish intellectuals of our time and one of my greatest teachers. I studied under him in Jerusalem from 2001-2005. One of my classmates, Rabbi Ed Feinstein, wrote, “Hartman’s passion rose from his conviction. He perceived the singular spiritual significance of this moment in Jewish history. For Hartman, our emergence from the Holocaust and the rebirth of Israel initiated a new stage, the third stage, in the unfolding covenantal drama of the Jewish people. His books include: Maimonides: Torah and Philosophic Quest, A Living Covenant: The Innovative Spirit in Traditional Judaism, Conflicting Visions: Spiritual Possibilities of Modern Israel and A Heart of Many Rooms, to name a few. In this five-session seminar we will discuss his radical thinking and compelling ideas. For more information, contact Tamar Zaken at tamar@lehrhaus.org or at 510-845-6420
