The Biblical Outlook is based on a unique approach to understanding Jewish thought.  In The Biblical Outlook, readers will find interpretation of basic Jewish concepts based on:

  • clear and unequivocal Jewish sources
    • the text of the Bible alone –supplemented with Halachic exegesis from the Oral Law
    •  unlike many philosophical works, it avoids the influence of external sources

Aspects of Revelation

What is revelation? How do we encounter revelation? What are its purposes?   In this lecture, Rabbi Polachek will describe the types of revelation experiences, purposes of revelation and covenants.

Predicting the Future

The Biblical Outlook  presents a unique approach to which aspects of the future are predicted and factors influencing such predictions.

The End of Days

The Biblical Outlook presents an understanding of the process leading up to the End of Days, as well as a description of the period itself.

The Biblical Outlook  is available from Urim Publications as well as from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
