Revelatory silence, idolatrous noise: Does the still, small voice speak to us today?

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

We will examine how our ancient sages, as well as modern Jewish philosophers (Heschel and Buber), have understood the prophet Elijah's encounter with the kol d'mamah dakah - the 'still, small voice'. In addition, we will consider what their interpretations of this episode 'reveal' about their overall philosophy and the era in which they lived ... and what our own interpretations reveal about ours.
