Face to Face: How Can We Pray to a God We Cannot See?

Hosted By: London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS)

How can we build a relationship with a transcendent God. The Rambam is famous for his opposition to any imagery of God. But does this make God unreachable and unimaginable? If God has no image, why does the Torah give God so many body parts?

Using the Rambam, Rav S.R Hirsch, Rav Eliezer Berkovits and others, we shall explore a non-traditional approach to this question.
