Thoughts on tradition from non-traditional thinkers

How did some of the great non-traditional Jewish thinkers of the 20th and 21st centuries understand Judaism? What are their views on the global role of Jews, the land of Israel and Jewish faith after the Holocaust? We will explore the fascinating and radical Jewish ideas of these world-class polymaths and how they can help us live as Jews today.
