Martin Buber

Martin Buber (1878–1965) was an Austrian-born Jewish philosopher, essayist, translator, and editor most known for his German translation of the Bible, his religious existentialism philosophy, and his role in the Zionist movement.   Buber grew up in Vienna during the rule of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, which fell after World War I. He was raised by his grandparents, who introduced him to Zionism and Hasidism at a young age. Buber had a knack for languages, learning more than ten during his school years. After school, Buber was recruited to lecture on Jewish religious studies at universities, educational centers, and Jewish groups. In 1938, as the Nazi Party gained power, Buber left Germany and settled in Jerusalem. He continued to lecture in Jerusalem at Hebrew University. Known for politically utopian ideals including anarchism and socialism, Buber became a leader in the Zionist movement and supported a bi-national solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict. In 1951, he received the Goethe Prize of the University of Hamburg and in 1953, the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade. In 1958, he won the Israel Prize. In 1963, he won the Erasmus Award in Amsterdam. He lived and worked in Jerusalem until his death in 1965.

Sabbatian revolution had stirred the Polish Jew in the innermost core of his being, its end had shaken the very foundations of all that was his world, and now he asked passionately for leadership, he craved for a man who would take him under his wings, give certainty to his bewildered soul, order and form to an existence which had become chaotic, and who would, above all, enable him again both to believe and to live.

The hasidic conception of the Torah is a further development of the traditional belief that God wishes to use man in the conquest of the world which he has created. God wills to make it truly into his own world, his own dominion, but only through the act of man.

this is not meant one single, messianic act, but the deeds of the everyday, which prepare for the messianic fulfilment. A harmony of all functions is here substituted for the eschatological fever of the crisis, and this harmony does not simply mean health, it means rather healing. The “mizvoth,” the commandments, mark the sphere of the things which are already expressly given over to man for hallowing. Hasidism developed the late kabbalistic teaching of the divine sparks that have fallen into things and which can be “lifted up” by man.
