Hashgacha Pratit (Part One)

  • In the previous series we looked at the issue of Mazal and the understanding that God runs the world through a complex system of intermediary causes and effects.
  • As we mentioned, this intersects the the central hashkafic idea of Divine Providence. It is a core Jewish belief that God runs the world. But is this Providence run in a macro or micro manner? Can we gain any religious understanding of why things happen to us the way they do?
