Liberalism and Halacha
Liberalism and Halacha: Liberalism and Halacha
We live in a divided world. Does halacha permit, encourage, or even require a spirit of tolerance, acceptance, and civility when interacting with people with whom we disagree, with people whose behavior is nefarious, and with people whose ideology we find repugnant?
In these classes we will survey the opinions of the great poskim regarding the demands of tolerance and its limitations.
Sources are available through the links in both WORD format and pdf. In class we will translate and explain these sources.
In addition to being one of Rabbi Brovender's first students, Rabbi Dovid Fink is an outstanding expertﾠand teacher of Halacha. Rabbi Fink received his Rabbinic ordination from ITRI and the Mir and was awarded his Ph.D in Semitic Languages and Linguistics from Yale University. Rav Fink has taught thousands of students from all over the world for over 35 years.
