Embellir le monde: la beauté dans le judaïsmeCe 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.
