By its very nature the Holocaust raises pressing theological questions vis-a-vis the larger traditional Jewish theological tradition. In this lecture I will explore the reasons why this is the case and how post-Holocaust Jewish thinkers have tried to respond to, and some to explain, the reason(s) for the Holocaust. The thinkers to be discussed are; Eliezer Berkovits, Abraham Joshua Heschel, Richard Rubenstein, Emil Fackenheim, Irving Greenberg, Emannual Levinas, and R. Menachem Schneerson, among others.
