The seventh Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson
(1902-1994) was perhaps the twentieth century's most well-known
Jewish religious leader, best identified for spearheading the
world-wide reconstruction of post-Holocaust Jewish religious life
and inspiring a re-awakening of Jewish awareness and observance.
Overseeing a primarily educational organization in over fifty
countries, he addressed a vast range of educational matters in his
correspondence, essays and public addresses. This book, the fruit
of the author's exhaustive research, closely examines Rabbi
Schneerson's substantive corpus and identifies the cohesive
educational theory that underlies it. The defining elements of that
innovative theory are shown to provide a vision for education that
is of practical relevance to communities and individuals far beyond
the Jewish community and for the wider world. After illustrating
how Rabbi Schneerson's practical agenda is a consequence of his
theory, implications of his educational theory for current
educational practice and policy in the wider setting are found to
frequently surpass the limitations of popular educational thinking
about religious and moral education. Cosmic Education illustrates a
new, sometimes radical, model of "theosocial" education.
