This seminar will immerse participants in traditional text study on the meaning of Tikkun Olam as a theological category from the rabbinic period, to medieval Kabbalah, to modern Jewish thought. From Mishnah, to Isaac Luria, to Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchik and Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, we will trace the central theological concepts of divine self-limitation, human agency, and human responsibility, deepening our intellectual and spiritual appreciation of a value at the heart of modern Judaism.
