Sam Intrator - The Radical and Modern Approach of Ishbitz Hasidic Thought
Valley Beit Midrash
Rabbi Sam Intrator of Kavanah Life (http://www.kavanahlifesingles.com) presents his Valley Beit Midrash (www.valleybeitmidrash.org) lecture "The Radical and Modern Approach of Ishbitz Hasidic Thought" before an audience at Temple Solel (www.templesolel.org/) in Paradise Valley, AZ.ABOUT THIS LECTURE: In this podcast, Rabbi Sam Intrator explores the major themes that show how the Ishbitzer Rebbe’s ideas, while rooted in traditional sources, are radical departures from traditional interpretations. This unique school of Hasidic study offers deep psychological insights and a very modern approach to understanding human nature. It reveals both very transcendent and accessible ideas in spirituality. We will also explore the apparent rebellion of the founder of this dynasty Rabbi Mordecei Yosef against his mentor, Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Kotzk, to show how disagreements are often not a rejection of another approach but is, in fact, an expansion and development of that which is seemingly being rejected.DONATE: bit.ly/1NmpbsPLEARNING MATERIALS: http://bit.ly/2Dfp5hUFor more info, please visit: www.facebook.com/valleybeitmidrash/ www.facebook.com/templesolelaz/ twitter.com/VBMTorah www.facebook.com/RabbiShmulyYanklowitz/Music: "Watercolors" by John Deley and the 41 Players, a public domain track from the YouTube Audio Library.
