    Hello, big new fan here. An outstanding episode; Rabbi Dr. Sessler is a remarkable speaker. Some of the Levinas tidbits were revelatory, such as Maurice Blanchot saving his family! Makes perfect sense these two would get along. I had never heard of R’ Leibovitz. Voices like his must be heard again. There is more to Israeli Judaism than Religious Zionism, and Leibovitz gives us some hard advice on the topic.
