Yaffe Scholars 2020-2021 Israel – The Land, The Story, The People
Please join us at 11 AM for one part of a three-part series with Aryeh Ben David, based on the writings of Abraham Isaac Kook (1865-1935), the first Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi in Pre-State Israel.
January 27: Becoming a More Loving Human Being Rav Kook writes: “I love all. I cannot not love all people, all nations. I have no need to force this feeling of love – it flows straight from the depth of wisdom of the soul.” What is love? Is it just a feeling, subject to the vagaries and conditionality of an emotion? Or is there a spiritual nature to love, enabling us to potentially love all of God’s creation?
