Yehuda Amital, David Strauss (translator)

Publisher: Ktav

This volume encapsulates Rabbi Amital's educational philosophy. It discusses both general issues, such as the importance of natural morality and what it means to fear God in today's world, as well as deeply personal matters, such as dealing with crisis and developing the ability to make decisions independently. While highlighting the importance of expressing one's individuality, Rabbi Amital also emphasizes the need to be part of the community. Rabbi Amital's philosophy is particularly marked by its insistence on the importance of the interpersonal commandments, of being a mensch, and of respecting all people created in God's image. He advocates a fully human engagement in religious life, believing that religious life does not contradict one's humanity, but rather must flow from one's humanity. This work combines the freshness and vigor of youth with the maturity and wisdom of age to produce an ideology for our times.
