Transcending the Great Right-Left Divide in Israel Through Spirituality
March 8, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$18
Rabbi Sam Intrator
In closely examining our ancient Spiritual Origins in Israel, a very contemporary Jewish perspective emerges that transcends the current great Right-Left Political and Spiritual divide. Through our study of relevant Biblical texts and commentary that span most of Jewish History, a practical wisdom will be presented that speaks with great significance to the challenges of modern day Israel. The Analysis will also show how certain ancient and futuristic mystical ideals provide guidance to help overcome many deep divisions in contemporary Israeli society as well in the Arab-Israeli conflict.
Rabbi Samuel Intrator is the former rabbi of the Carlebach Shul in New York City, and a renowned spiritual teacher. In practice and message, Rabbi Intrator crosses the boundaries between Jewish denominations to reveal a common heritage as the source of the Jewish tradition. In his words, “Judaism today needs to get down to its roots and not be divided by its branches.”
