Philosophy Circle Study: My Teacher: David Hartman, Seeker of Truth
Mon, November 4, 2019 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Led by Rabbi Peretz Wolf-Prusan. We are coming upon the 7th 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 just a few. In this five session seminar we will discuss his radical thinking and compelling ideas.
