The Herzl Institute is delighted to announce a conference on the topic:
What Does ‘Torah From Heaven’ Mean?
This conference will seek to elucidate the traditional Jewish theology of torah from heaven in response to recent challenges. We hope to address questions such as: What can the idea that the torah is from heaven teach us about the relationship between God’s instruction and the world of human experience? About the place of the prophet as a bearer of God’s word, bringing instruction to other human beings? About the normative character of a reality that not only “is” but also commands? About the significance of tradition and its relationship with other means of exploring God’s will such as human reasoning?
