Fate and Destiny
From Holocaust to the State of Israel
By Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik
KTAV Publishing House: 2000
ISBN: 0881256854

Book Description:

One of the classics of modern Jewish thought, Kol Dodi Dofek is now translated in English and titled Fate and Destiny: From the Holocaust to the State of Israel. Rabbi Soloveitchik presents an extended theological meditation on the Holocaust and the rise of the State of Israel, a profound examination of the Jewish “covenant of faith” and the “covenant of fate and destiny” which links all Jews, religious, irreligious and non-religious. This covenant of faith manifests itself in shared circumstances, shared responsibility and shared activity. Fate and destiny likewise links all Jews, but while fate is thrust upon the Jews, destiny is freely chosen by the individual Jew and the Jewish people by adopting a Torah lifestyle and possesses both significance and purpose.
