Lubavitchers Organize “inward” Communication Weekend

Download PDF for this date

One hundred and fifty college professors from all over the United States have come to the Lubavitcher headquarters in Brooklyn to experience “a unique weekend program of ‘inward’ communication for Jewish intellectuals who seek to deepen their relationship with Judaism.”

The theme of the weekend is “spiritual cybernetics,” which “seeks to explore the means of communication with the known physical aspects of our existence,” Rabbi Shmuel M. Butman, Director of the College and University Council of the Lubavitcher Youth Organization, which is sponsoring the weekend, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency today.

The academicians came to 770 Eastern Parkway to experience “live” Judaism “rather than learn it from books.” Rabbi Butman said. He explained the participants are exploring the “penetrating insights of Hasidim.”
