Summary
God, Torah, and Israel: these three concepts (i.e., personal belief, the meaning of Jewish ritual acts, and the purpose of continued Jewish existence) have been the focus of Jewish thought throughout history. But the last four centuries presented Jewish thinkers with difficult challenges. These lectures address the challenges to Jewish intellectual thought in the past 500 years, identifying such challenges and revealing the ways in which a small group of Jewish thinkers attempted to address these challenges
