Description:
This book seeks to re-examine the question of whether, indeed, Rav Kook’s halakhic teachings lack originality and innovation; whether the two worlds of Rav Kook – the philosophical and the halakhic – are truly contradictory; whether those who maintain this position are correct in neglecting Rav Kook’s halakhic heritage.
The discussion here focuses on the nature of the philosophical and ideological considerations that find expression in his halakhic teachings. The type of considerations to be examined is called “meta-halakhic” or “extra-halakhic”; this term is defined in relation to the accepted conceptual framework and boundaries of halakha.
