Presentation Transcript

  1. The Place of “Place” in Jewish Tradition

  2. Place • “All of our experience is bound up with place.” • How are we tied to a “place?” • Objects • Memories • Identity • Belonging • Longing

  3. Land • As partner • As gift • As symbol of the covenant • As constant • Instability of the Land • Alienation from the Land • Cain • Nod – movement

  4. Abraham • “…humans can not live in such states of wandering, not knowing what place to call home...” • “Unlike the others, where displacement was punishment, this was redemption. It was not separation from, but call to. Abraham was going home.” (p. 212)

  5. Mezuzah • Shared residence • Embassy of the Holy Land • Spiritual dimension of Israel

  6. Tallit

  7. Phalectory

  8. Law and Love in Jewish Theology

  9. The Torah • As marriage contract (Ketubah) • Betrothed to G-D • Not a dry legal document, but an expression of love • Not Law alone

  10. “Observance of the law is a free expression of joy and not a spiritually crippling manifestation of servitude. Observance of the commandments is not a curse from which the Jew needs to be redeemed, but a blessing which makes one worthy of being redeemed.” (p. 468)

  11. Observance of the Law is the Jew’s primary way of manifesting his or her love for G-D. (p. 471)
