• Why Jewish Students Need Poland Trips Now More Than Ever

  • ‘What We’re Missing’: Does Modern Orthodoxy Need Neo-Chassidus?

    16 FEB 2024 · Last week, we spoke about Neo-Chassidus from a more analytic, sociological perspective — why it’s here, why Modern Orthodoxy is drawn to it, etc. Today, we explore Neo-Chassidus from the “inside”: What does it promise, feel like, offer? Infusing our Judaism with rich spirituality and deep meaning is crucial to Modern Orthodoxy today. How does it highlight what we were missing before? Rabbi David Block is joined by Shalhevet Judaic faculty Rabbis Derek Gormin and Yagil Tsaidi, to explore the world of Neo-Chassidus from the inside — and from the world of Modern Orthodoxy — taking last week’s episode to a new level.

  • How is Neo-Chassidus Changing Modern Orthodoxy?

    8 FEB 2024 · There seems to be a shift in Modern Orthodoxy toward neo-Chassidus, a more emotionally charged Judaism.

Modern Orthodoxy, in its purest form, has historically been expressed as a “colder” intellectual endeavor, and we may be experiencing a correction to embrace those in the community that crave something more, something different. Rabbi David Block is joined by Shalhevet Judaic faculty Rabbi Ari Schwarzberg and Dr. Sheila Keiter, to explore the changes in Modern Orthodoxy and how neo-Chassidus has changed our community and relationship with G-d and Judaism.
