Rabbi Scott Perlo will be speaking on Rav Kook's Redemption: Individual Spirituality and the Coming of the Messiah:

Rav Kook was the spiritual powerhouse of early Israeli Judaism. His willingness to cross traditional boundaries, embrace Jews across religious lines, and support the building of the state of Israel positioned him to be the spiritual light behind both secular and religious elements in the early state.

As a writer and teacher, he was exuberant. A prolific, apparently irrepressible writer, Rav Kook understood the joy possible for a human soul as necessarily connected to the larger joy of existence, and of God. Redemption would come, then, from within the human soul, and spread outward; not the other way around.

We'll study together his connection between birur (clarifying, spiritual growth) in an individual soul and the way it brings redemption to the clal - existence entire.

Rabbi Scott Perlo left his beloved waves of the Pacific Ocean to serve as Rabbi at Sixth & I, but you’ll find him returning to surf or dive any chance he gets. Scott’s travels and experiences as a rabbi have been eclectic and have blessed him. Scott had the honor to be the first rabbi of the Professional Leaders Project and Moishe House, a founder of the Ma’or Beit Midrash and CreateHavdallah, rabbi of Adat Shalom in West L.A., and rabbinic intern at IKAR and Beit Warszawa in Warsaw, Poland. He received his Undergraduate Degree from University of Pennsylvania and his ordination from the Ziegler School at the AJU in 2008.
