The wicked son - confessions of a self-hating Jew

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Isaac Deutscher, historian and Hassidic rabbi, was immersed in the Talmud and Torah. His classic essay, ‘The Non-Jewish Jew’, notes the paradox that Jewish heretics belong to a characteristically Jewish tradition. Foremost was the great ethical philosopher Spinoza, considered wicked and excommunicated from the 17th-century Jewish community. More recently, Arendt, too, was accused of lacking ahavat Israel - love for the Jewish people - as a consequence of her universal stance on questions of justice.
