IMartin Buber (1878-1965) was one of the most unconventional and impactful Liberal Jewish thinkers in Western Europe and he continued to have an influence during the last three decades of his life in Israel, and still today in the United States. His studies of the Hebrew Bible, Jewish education, the teachings of the Hasidic Masters and mysticism, and especially his philosophy of dialogue and ideal human relations, remain in print to this day. His contemporary and friend, Rabbi Leo Baeck (1873-1956), was also known for his writings and teachings on the Bible, Jewish ethics, and the differences between Judaism and Christianity, but had another dimension to him that Buber lacked. He remained behind in Berlin as a leader of the Jewish community until his deportation to the Theresienstadt concentration camp in 1943. He survived the war and became a key leader of the World Union for Progressive Judaism in the UK and US, as well as a rabbi-teacher in Cincinnati and London. This course will cover key aspects of the lives and writings of both figures and discuss how they speak to us today.
