Searching for God in Judaism
A Rationalist’s Theory of a Spiritual Reality

Chaim Seidler-Feller

Global Culture & History, Ritual, Prayer & Spirituality

Religion and God are currently confronting the unrelenting onslaught of the evangelical atheists. Yet, it is evident that the search for God is a primary feature of our generation. This session constitutes a personal effort at articulating a meaningful notion of God—one that is spiritually fulfilling and, at the same time, intellectually uncompromising. The search ranges across the Jewish tradition from the fundamentals of Biblical monotheism to Maimonides’ rationalism and on to Hasidic mysticism.
