Professor Fine on Mysticism and "Repair of the World"

Thursday, February 16, 2006 - 15:12
Irene Kaplan Leiwant Professor of Jewish Studies Lawrence Fine was asked to write a piece on "What Is Mysticism?" in connection with PBS's Religion & Ethics Newsweekly, which is produced by Thirteen/WNET New York. The overview of mysticism in various religious traditions appears in the Religion & Ethics Viewer's Guide 2005 and is also available online.

Professor Fine was also interviewed for a religion feature story that appeared January 22 in the Dallas Morning News on "Tikkun Olam," referring to the Jewish ethical concept of "Repair of the World." The story has since been reprinted in numerous papers, including the Fort Wayne (IN) News Sentinel, the Chicago Tribune, and the Contra Costa (CA) Times.
