This breathtaking work by Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchik, arguably the foremost creative scholar and influential leader of 20th-century American Jewry, resists easy categorisation. Drawing on the Jewish longing for God allegorised in the Song of Songs, “the Rav” sets out to address the great existential issues from a sophisticated perspective.
