For Rabbi Brovender's essay "Toward Ahavat Hashem: Art and the Religious Experience" as a PDF,
Rabbi Brovender on Art, Tefillah,
and Redeeming Modern Orthodoxy
On March 14, 2005, ATID President Rabbi Chaim Brovender engaged the ATID Fellows in a free wheeling discussion of the
potential for art to energize Jewish life and prayer, and how communing with great works of the human spirit just might redeem
Modern Orthodoxy in the contemporary world.
We invite you to listen on-line or download the audio of the talk.
During the discussion, we screened a clip of Bill Moyer's interview with Sister Wendy Beckett.
