Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the reciprocal relations that Christianity maintained with Israel during periods of Jewish Exile and Redemption alike, as reflected in Rabbi Yéhouda Léon Askénazis historiosophic approach. R. Askénazi clarifies repeatedly that the conflict that was so clear and consistent throughout the years of exile may well be solved and settled some time in the future. For many years, Rosenzweig conducted intimate dialogue with Christianity and with Christian thinkers. The comparison between Christianity and Judaism is the background for all his philosophy. R. Asknazis philosophy is manifestly historiocentric and humanistic, even if anchored in the basic assumption that the Jews were chosen as the theological and moral leaders of all mankind: the family of earth that was created in Gods image must settle all conflicts originating in each cultures aspiration to assume a position of primacy and leadership.

Keywords: Christianity; Israeli society; Jewish Exile; Judaism; Rabbi Yhouda Lon Asknazi's philosophy
