Teaching God: Transcendence or Immanence?

By Tamar Biala

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), February 2004

As an educator, Biala reflects on two possible images of God: as a transcendent being or as a vulnerable model of divinity. Rejecting the image of a transcendental God, Biala argues for the importance of vulnerability, empowering humanity to realize its own strength and responsibility for Tikkun Olam.
