Abstract

In a post-Shoah world, theological exploration of Shoah issues and events questions the interrelationship between human and divine responsibility, often shaking and rendering radical reorientation to faith belief and living among ashes of evil. This paper summarizes and, to some extent, critiques the thought of early key thinkers of Shoah theology in America, including Eliezer Berkovits, who attempted to understand and explain religiously Shoadicy. It also argues for cooperative Jewish-Christian dialogue and activity in dealing with Shoah-related matters, a position neither engaged in nor supported by Berkovits.
