Rabbi Haïm Korsia

Embellir le monde: la beauté dans le judaïsme

Ce cours dépasse les thèmes distincts, associés ou confrontés de beauté et de laideur. Il se concentre plus fondamentalement sur l'idée d'embellissement. La vie c'est ce qu'on en fait, à nous de percevoir à nous de ressentir le beau et de positiver l'état de nature. La beauté et la laideur sont donc sur un mode dynamique, et non statique, la beauté est à créer. La laideur n'est pas expressément citée, mais elle est omniprésente et les exemples s'ensuivent de à l'émasculation de Noé aux atrocités de la Shoah. Mais, Il présente surtout une énorme mise en garde contre la fausse association d'idée beau/bon, laid/mauvais. Le beau, qui crée de l'émotion, et qui pourrait nous faire perdre de vue le bon, doit être contenu par la règle pour nous permettre de vivre de manière juste.

Physical and Spiritual Beauty in Song of Songs

Song of Songs (Shir HaShirim) is often studied as a portrait of lovers and focuses on the beauty beheld by the poet. It has also been understood as a metaphor for the relationship between the people of Israel and God. Between these two vastly different interpretations is a rich discussion about the nature of beauty as the thread connecting the physical and the spiritual. What if it is just about the physical? How does this challenge our reading of Song of Songs, and deepen our apprehension of beauty as a Jewish concept?

"A Beautiful Man?" Joseph and the Character of Masculinity in Judaism and Islam.

Joseph (favored son of Jacob, the last of the Biblical patriarchs) is famously beautiful, “of fine face and figure” (Genesis 39:6). He is also one of the shared heroes of Judaism and Islam. Through a textual twin experiment and close analysis of the two traditions, we'll look together at ethnic constructions of beauty and ugliness: What is Jewish beauty?What is masculinity and what is Jewish masculinity? What is femininity and Jewish femininity?
