The Theological Legacy of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik By Dr. David Hartman 6"x9" (219 Pages)Publisher: Jewish Lights, 2004
Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik (1903 1993) profoundly influenced modern Orthodox Judaism in the United States and Judaism as a whole by opening up a discourse between the tradition of Torah study and Western philosophical thought. The future of both religious Zionism in Israel and of Orthodoxy in America hangs to a great extent on how we interpret his intellectual legacy. Dr. David Hartman s penetrating analysis of Rabbi Soloveitchik s work reveals a Judaism committed to intellectual courage, integrity, and openness.
A renowned theologian and philosopher, Hartman meticulously explores the subtlety and complexity of Rabbi Soloveitchik s theological thought, exposing a surprising intersection of halakhic tradition and modern Western theology a confrontation that deepens and expands our spiritual understanding. Hartman s provocative interpretation bears witness to the legitimacy of remaining loyal to the Judaic tradition without sacrificing one s intellectual freedom and honesty
