Between Religious Experience and Religious Commitment - Five Addresses on Youth in Crisis
by HaRav Yehuda Amital zt"l

In recent years, Religious Zionist youth in Israel have experienced a spiritual upheaval, one that has assumed almost crisis proportions. Exposed to trends in both global culture and Israeli society, they find themselves wavering between extremes: radical individualism vs. community-consciousness; mitzva observance based on commitment and obligation vs. the search for subjective meaning; and religiosity based on knowledge vs. religiosity based on experience. In this booklet, Rav Yehuda Amital, rosh ha-yeshiva of Yeshivat Har Etzion, examines these trends and charts a meaningful path towards confronting the educational challenges of our generation.
