Hashgachah Clarification from the Rosh ha’Yeshiva

February 09, 2022 Rabbi Matt Schneeweiss Season 7 Episode 1
The Stoic Jew
Hashgachah Clarification from the Rosh ha’Yeshiva
Show Notes

Synopsis: On Day #5 of my January 2022 solo cabin retreat, I got a call from my Rosh ha’Yeshiva. The subject? Hashgachah pratis. This longer-than-normal episode is my recollection of that conversation, supplemented by my own extensive footnotes and reflections. I’m posting this as an episode of The Stoic Jew Podcast AND the Machshavah Lab podcast for reasons that are explained therein.
