Zvi Hirschfield – Rav Kook: The Particular and the Universal

The tension between the particular and the universal lies at the heart of Torah and many of today’s cultural challenges. R’ A.Y. HaCohen Kook was one of the great thinkers and holy souls of the Jewish people in the early 20th century. He saw himself at the crossroads of history – the world was between the wars and the Jewish people between exile and redemption. His writings offer a relationship between the particular and universal which combines ancient and modern wisdom and which is more relevant every day.
