One of the most influential people in Israel in the 20th century was Rabbi Kook, known by the nickname "hare'ayah"-הראי"ה, an abbreviation of his full name, Rabbi Abraham Isaac Hacohen. He was born in 1865 in Latvia to a very religious family. As a child he was curious about all things Jewish -the study of the Torah, Hebrew language, Jewish and general philosophy and mysticism.
Rabbi Meir Baal HaNes (Hebrew : רבי מאיר בעל הנס) , meaning Rabbi Meir the miracle maker, is one of the most known Jewish sages. He belonged to the third generation of Tannaim . He lived at the time of the second Rabbi Simeon Ben Gamliel, about 1,800 years ago.
Rabbi Simeo Ben Gamliel gathered the teachings of all the Sages and arranged them in 6 volumes, known as the Mishnah.
The term Divine Providence (Hebrew: השגחה פרטית) is one of the main ideas in Judaism which means that G-d watches over his creations all the time .The literal meaning of Divine Providence is individual watching.According the the Jewish faith there are two types of providence :
1. Hashgahah kelalit, "general providence," G- d's care for the world in generaland for species in general.
Tzimtzum (Hebrew:צמצום) , meaning contraction, is a Kabbalistic principle used to describe G- d, the process of creation by "contracting" his infinite light in order to allow for a "conceptual space" in which a finite and seemingly independent world could exist. In the Kabbalah, G-d is referred to as the Ein Sof (has no end). In the act of creation, G-d made something very finite out of the infinite.
What is the Image Of G-d? The Rambam claims that the image of G-d is actually the common sense of man. The Ramban says that the soul of the man is actually the image of G-d .
According to Rabbi Meir Simcha of Dvinsk because G-d gave man free will, he can choose his ways and he can also do things against G-d's will. The man is not controlled by nature and he can choose between evil and good.
