A World Built, Destroyed, and Rebuilt: Rabbi Yehudah Amital's Confrontation with the Memory of the Holocaust
"Rabbi Yehudah Amital, who has served for almost forty years as head of one of Israel's leading yeshivot, Yeshivat Har Etzion, is a Holocaust survivor. Throughout his career, he has attempted to address the Holocaust and its ramifications on both the educational and spiritual levels. Rabbi Amital's confrontation with the memory of the Holocaust is characterized by authenticity, honesty and courage." "This book analyzes his original religious approach, against the background of other views, especially those of his fellow Religious Zionists. This work presents the reader with the direct and painful grappling of an educator and thinker with the most terrible event in human history."--Jacket.
