The TorahCafe.com people later edited this video very nicely, although for some reason they keep removing my opening joke! Still, it’s great to have the PowerPoints integrated into the video, so here’s a slightly different version for your enjoyment.

One thought on “Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch: Architect of Modernity

  1. I enjoyed watching the video on, Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch. It must be hard for an orthodox man, to see people getting assimilated during the enlightenment because of secularism. Furthermore, he must be an amazing man to deal with this conflict and come up with a strategy to deal with the assimilated Jews. It is thanks to his philosophy, that one needs to have a job, have derech eretz and learn torah. If not for his ideas, the orthodox people will also be lost & assimilated. Thank you for sharing this video.
