On Serving God
Does Halakhah Help or Hinder?

Shai Held

In this session, we'll explore one of the most basic questions Jews can ask: what role, if any, should Halakhah play in our service of God? Martin Buber and Yeshayahu Leibowitz offer two seemingly totally antithetical answers to this question. For one, Halakhah is little more than an obstacle to authentic worship;to the other, it itself constitutes authentic worship. What, if anything, do Buber and Leibowitz have to say to each-other, and to us? Can we use extreme views to help us articulate more nuanced and moderate ones?
