The Triumph of Life

Organization: Hadar Institute

The arc of history runs from primordial creation to ultimate redemption—and the Torah’s goal is to guide us through the time in between. What is the purpose of creation? What does God require of us in order to create the final perfected world? What wisdom is there in the Jewish tradition that might direct our steps to get there? Join one of the most influential and sophisticated Jewish thinkers of the 20th century and beyond, Rabbi Yitz Greenberg, on a journey with your havruta to think about these questions.

Through passages from traditional Jewish texts and excerpts from Rabbi Greenberg’s upcoming book, The Triumph of Life, we will explore the purpose of creation, the purpose of Torah, and the purpose of our own selves—as individuals and as a people—in bringing God’s vision to life.
