Jlife Buzz-Mystical Zionism’s Surprising Origins: Rav Kook’s Early Decades Presented by Yehudah Mirsky, Department of Near Eastern and Judaic Studies, Brandeis University

Rav (Rabbi) Abraham Isaac Kook

     Recently, a presentation was held which focused on Rav (Rabbi) Abraham Isaac Kook (1865–1935) is widely known as the first Ashkenazi chief rabbi of the Land of Israel, an important theologian, a foundational thinker of religious Zionism, and the Zionist movement’s most influential and controversial rabbinic advocate. His legacy and debates around it have played important roles in Israeli politics and society till the present. Yet the development of his views before his migration to Palestine in 1904 have not received scholarly attention. This lecture examined how Kook’s very unconventional Zionism emerged from decades of meditation on questions of metaphysics, ethics, and the distinctive spiritual challenges of modernity. Presented by the Allen and Joan Bildner Center for the Study of Jewish Life at Rutgers University, this virtual talk was free and open to the public.
