In this article, the writer looks at the impact of the Holocaust upon contemporary (post-1945) Jewish thought. In particular, the writer looks at the works of Rubenstein, Berkovits and Fackenheim and notes how these major scholars are forced to grapple with an issue that threatens to permanently undermine the faith of the Jewish people in the God of their ancestors.
From the Paper:"As well, the paper will also note the general despair which often seems to characterize Jewish works in the post-Holocaust epoch. In the end, the horrors of the Holocaust have forced many Jewish theologians to consider that they may be worshiping a God who is either not omnipotent - or not omni-benevolent."
