Judaism in the Post-Modern Age: The Writings and Thought of Rav Shagar
Hosted By: Hadar
This class will explore the writings of Rabbi Shimon Gershon Rosenberg (1949–2007), known by the acronym Shag”ar. Rav Shagar was a leading Israeli thinker, Torah scholar, and teacher and in his work he aimed to address current spiritual, cultural, and intellectual issues. His approach weaves together hasidut, mysticism, and modern and postmodern philosophy. In this class we’ll touch upon the role and place of halakhah in a postmodern world, developing faith and ideology with self-awareness, and how to think about divine providence among other themes. Rav Shagar has a unique and uniquely sensitive approach to deep and deeply vexing philosophical and theological questions of our day.
