Bio

Dr. Meir Buzaglo is a lecturer in the Department of Philosophy at the Hebrew University. As a son of the late Rabbi David Buzaglo and board member of the Avi Chai Foundation, he has been instrumental in the piyut renewal and its dissemination in contemporary culture of Israel. Dr. Buzaglo is deeply engaged in the question of Jewish identity in Israeli society; he draws on philosophical tools and methods to determine masorati (traditional) identity and is active in strengthening it. The understanding that the ethos of Israeli society needs to be brought up to date and integrated at its philosophical, political, cultural and social dimensions led Meir to the founding of the Tikun Movement, whose membership forms a community of solidarity spearheaded by today’s educational and social leadership of Israel.
