  • Rav Kook's Life-Long 'Love-Affair' with "Kerem b'Yavne"
    From age 14 (!) & on, Rav Kook had a long going love-affair with the concept of Kerem B'Yavneh, & dreamt of starting a new universal, modern & Zionist yeshiva there. The beginning of this class mentions the various stages of the implemention of this dream, which was ironically realized after his, & his benefactor, R. Gutz's passing. But the main topic dealt with is Rav Kook's explanation why this is the only yeshiva, & only "stop" of the Sanhedrin, which was uniquely & consistently called: Kerem (vineyard)? Rav Kook thought that if the Torah left Jerusalem via Yavneh, than it should conversely, 1st return to Yavneh, with the dream of Yr-m coming later. He connects this to division which enables indiv. development, & exile/sparks gathering.

  • What Makes Rav Kook Into Such a "Game-Changer"?
    Upon visiting Israel, Jews from America are surprised to find that "The Rav" here (even among such notables as Rav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach) is Rav Kook, and not Rav Soloveitchik. Rav Kook's influential and popular standing for millions of Jews, makes it that much more tragic, that his writings are not known in American or Haredi yeshivot. In the Jubilee of the State of Israel, surveys found that he was the most in-consensus figure among Israelis, and the question is: Why is his Torah and personality so popular? This overview deals with the historic background of Rav Kook, his generation, and his harmonious, holistic synthesizing (rational, emotional and mystical) Torah, which may very well be that which is missing, to be mekarev the masses.
