«Prof. Yehoyada Amir Ph.D. is an Associate Professor for Jewish Thought at Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion in Jerusalem and a ...»

-- [ Page 2 ] --

The questions of Faith, Truth and Reason stood at the heart of the International Rosenzweig Society conference that took place in Jerusalem during the summer of 2006. This was a summer which by the coincidence of history powerfully manifested in the painful midEastern context the impact historical tragedy often has on human life and its sense of justice and faith.

The conference was convened by the Jerusalem based Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion and The Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies in conjunction with the Rosenzweig Minerva Center of Hebrew University and Haifa University. Israeli, 14 Forward European, North and Latin American scholars gathered for three days to conduct a dialogue with each other, with Rosenzweig’s philosophy as well as with the philosophical, cultural and theological efforts confronting parallel human issues in light of Rosenzweig’s thought. For three days the external reality, otherwise so deeply present, was suspended in favor of an open philosophical discourse, aiming towards a better understanding of the human-condition and the fostering of a better human future.

This volume is based upon the papers presented at the conference along with their ensuing discussions. It also includes a number of articles written in the spirit of the conference in the years following that moment of grace. Its intended audience includes all those who view Rosenzweig’s philosophy as inspiring, challenging and evocative, contributing to Rosenzweig scholarship and to contemporary philosophical discourse. Its intent is not only to reveal to the broader intellectual public the progress of dialogue with and through Rosenzweig, but also to give rise to further academic, philosophical and theological discourse that may lead to the formulation of a responsible notion of Faith, Truth and Reason for the contemporary period.

The editors wish to thank all authors who contributed their thought and scholarship to this volume and were exceptionaly patient throughout the long period it took us to publish it. We are grateful to Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion and its president Rabbi Professor David Ellenson who generously provided the financial means needed for the completion of this book. We also thank the presidium of the International Rosenzweig Society and its President Professor Doctor Myriam Bienenstock for their help and support. For the translation of the two articles that are based on papers presented in the public session of the conference that took place in Hebrew we thank Peretz Rodman. Last not least we express our gratitude to Lukas Trabert from the publishing house Alber and to Frank Hermenau for their ongoing support in producing this volume.
