Prof. Haym Soloveitchik will discuss his essay “Rupture and Reconstruction: The Transformation of Contemporary Orthodoxy” at an ATID Erev Diyyun, on the first night of Hol HaMoed Sukkot (Sunday, October 8) in Jerusalem.See also Isaac Chavel's On Haym Soloveitchik's "Rupture and Reconstruction: The Transformation of Contemporary Orthodox Society": A Response and Dr. Soloveitchik's Clarifications and Reply.
When the essay appeared (in Tradition, Summer 1994) it awakened considerable discussion, interest, and debate within the Modern Orthodox community. It has provided a lens through which some amongst us view contemporary Jewish life and learning, as well as our work in Torah education.
The event is by invitation only, and is geared for those who have read the essay in advance (click here), prepared with questions and comments for discussion.
For information or an invitation, email ATID.
