The history of the people of Israel is marked by periods of radical rebirth, in which a relatively small group writes a new chapter in Israel’s story. Prophets and scholars together formulated a theological, cultural and educational revolution that has carried Judaism until today. What was their secret? How can their vision and their policies help our people in this generation of national rebirth?

This session was given by Rabbi Dov Berkovits as part of the Pardes Executive Learning Seminar, Summer 2017.
