Description:


The teachings of Rabbi Joseph Dov Soloveitchik (1903-1993) are as broad and varied as Judaism itself ranging over a wide gamut of Biblical and Rabbinic literature in all of their historic complexity. Regardless of the subject matter, they are all marked by Rabbi Soloveitchik’s signature clarity of exposition and profundity of thought. This study focuses primarily upon those of his teachings which deal with the basic themes of Jewish theology such as belief in God, ethics, God in history, the philosophy of Halakha. Our approach may be characterized as analytic and critical as we examine these particular teachings against a background of the traditional understanding of these themes so as to determine the degree to which they have been enhanced by the teachings of Rabi Soloveitchik.
