In Honor of the Ramchal's 300th Birthday

Monday, May 14th 2007 (the 26 of Iyar 5767) was celebrated as the 300th birthday of Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzutto, known as Ramchal. There were special celebrations in Jerusalem, Israel; in Padua, Italy where he was born; and on various on-line sites.

Rabbi Yaakov Feldman, who conducts Project Genesis's "Ramchal" series (as well as "Spiritual Excellence") and has written extensively on Rabbi Luzzatto's works, offers a special four part weekly series entitled, "A View of the Tzaddik and His Works: in Celebration of the Ramchal's 300th Birthday" in celebration.

The first installment was mailed out on May 14th 2007 itself and comprised of a biography of Ramchal, the second offered a short description of his many works, and the third and fourth focus in succession on two lesser known works of his: Klach Pitchei Chochma ("138 Gates of Wisdom") and Da'at Tevunot ("Knowing The Reasons") by describing them and granting us insight into them.

Part One: His Life

Part Two: His Works

Part Three: Klach Pitchei Chochma (“138 Openings to Wisdom”)

Part Four: Da'at Tevunot ("Knowing the Reasons")


The name of this class,

Ramchal

is a name by which Rabbi Luzzato is commonly known and is a Hebrew acronym for
Rabbi Moshe Chayim Luzzatto,

the outstanding scholar and teacher of Jewish ethics who lived in the 18th century.
