Description

For Gershom G. Scholem, of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, no single body of thought can be regarded as authentic Jewish theology, and his theological perspective is conditioned by the impact of the Holocaust and the founding of the state of Israel. Other participants join him in a search for common ground among the diverse interpretations within Judaism and debate the problems inherent in affirming the principles of the Jewish tradition in a secular age, including Jerald Brauer, Emil L. Fackenheim, Robert Gordis, Alfred Gottschalk, David Weiss Halivni, Jakob Petuchowski, Philip Rieff, Ellis Rivkin, Nathan Rotenstreich, Marie Syrkin, R.J. Zwi Werblowsky, and John Wilkinson. Jewish Traditions I. Sept. 10, 1973.
