The Nature of Hashgacha Pratis
Rav Aryeh Leibowitz
We were privileged to welcome Rav Aryeh Leibowitz, S'gan Menahel and Ra"M at Yeshivat Sha'alvim as a guest speaker. Rav Leibowitz discussed the various opinions of the nature of Hashgacha Pratit (Divine Providence).
The SFW Guest Speaker Program for 5776 is generously sponsored by an anonymous family.
Rav Leibowitz attended Sha'alvim for two years before studying at Yeshiva University. At YU, he was a student of Rabbi Mayer Twersky, and earned semicha ordination from RIETS, a B.A. in Modern Jewish History and Philosophy from Yeshiva College, and an M.A. and Ph.D. from Yeshiva's Bernard Revel Graduate School. Following his marriage, Rav Leibowitz moved to Yerushalayim, and continued his learning at Yeshiva Ohalei Torah, under Rav Daniel Belsky. In 2007, he returned to Sha'alvim as a member of the kollel, and in 2011 he was appointed Assistant Dean of the Overseas Program. Rav Leibowitz has written a number of Torah and scholarly articles, and is the author of Hashgacha Pratis: An Exploration of Divine Providence and Free Will (Targum Press, 2009).
