By Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik One of the classics of modern Jewish thought, Kol Dodi Dofek is now translated into English and titled Fate and Destiny: From the Holocaust to the State of Israel. Rabbi Soloveitchik presented an extended theological meditation of 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 and irreligious and non-religious. This Covenant of faith manifests 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 by the Jewish People by adopting a Torah lifestyle and posses both significance and purpose. Rabbi Dr. Walter S. Wurzberger, a prominent disciple of the author has provided an introduction.
