Rav Kook on "Can Maccabees and Hellenists Get Along?"

Rabbi Ari Shvat

Mondays December 12 & 19

1:30pm Eastern, 8:30pm Israel

Rav Kook, one of the most innovative thinkers of the past century, is known for his approach of harmonizing the apparent opposites. The battle between the Maccabean and Greek cultures which we celebrate on Chanukah, provides an ideal set for dealing with Modernism & Orthodox Judaism and how to harmonize the best of both worlds, without apologetics.
