This day in Jewish history / Philosopher Martin Buber is born
Buber was shunned by some Orthodox for his lax approach to Jewish law, by some Reform Jews for his promotion of Hasidism, and by many Jews for his reconciliatory attitude to the Arabs.
February 8, 1878, is the birth date of Martin Buber, the philosopher and educator who did much to popularize Hasidic teachings and who served as a bridge between Judaism and Christianity.
