A Modern Search For Jewish Inter-Faith Life
Presented by Father Terry Ryan, CSP
Father Terry Ryan, the Paulist priest whose workshops on contemplation and centering prayer when he was pastor of St. John XXIII Catholic Parish in Knoxville inspired the creation of Seekers of Silence, returns to present two programs on Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi.
Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi was a lifelong Hasid who explored ways for Judaism to participate and grow in a modern Inter-faith world free of fundamental triumphalism. One of his teachers was Howard Thurman, whom we will study later this year. He also met Thomas Merton at Gethsemane and corresponded with him. He appreciated St. Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross. He met the Dalai Lama in India. He taught at Temple University and at Naropa, a Buddhist-inspired, ecumenical, and nonsectarian in Boulder, Colorado. Over time he shifted his focus from the restoration of Hasidism after the Holocaust to a focus on the renewal of Jewish life in dialogue with other religions and science. Part of his contemplative pursuit was a search for why so many young Jews got involved with Buddhist and Hindu spiritual life. He died in 2014.
