THU 12/23 @ 4 PM: Jewish Intellectual History

12/23/21 - 4:00 PM - Via Zoom

Session Twenty-Two: Theological Responses to the Nazi Holocaust. Led by Susan Towers. In the first edition of "After Auschwitz", published in 1961, Richard Rubenstein (1924-2013) claimed that the destruction of European Jewry meant Jews could no longer affirm the myth of an omnipotent God or its corollary, the election of Israel. Emil Fakenheim (1916-2003) provided a meaningful response to Rubenstein in his 1970 work, "God's Presence in History".
