A Conservative Philosophy of Progress: Using Judaism to Rethink the Bible

Session 7 - Thursday, June 22 -
3:45 PM to 5:05 PM

Intermediate Course

How can the Jewish tradition contribute to our understanding of the idea of progress? How does progress relate to the material conditions of man, and how does it relate to the Jewish idea of redemption? What is G-d’s role in history? What is the role of the human individual in history? Is history moving somewhere, and do Jews understand technology and other innovations as part of that movement?
