Rav Shagar

Rav Shagar

Shimon Gershon Rosenberg (1949-2007), known as Rav Shagar, was one of the unique and original thinkers in Modern Orthodoxy in our time. He is known for his ability to incorporate in his thinking Chasidic and mystical ideas on the one hand, and existential and postmodern philosophy on the other. His thought has had a deep influence on the religious discourse in Israel.
