“A Philosopher in the Eye of the Storm: Monsieur Chouchani and Lévinas’s “Nameless” Essay”
This article considers the role of the individual during crises in humanism and the ethical responsibility with which the individual is charged in such times of moral calamity. In a narrow sense, the article explores Emmanuel Lévinas’s “Nameless” (“Sans nom”), an essay that appears in his book Proper Names, and proposes viewing it as his personal reading in honor of his unique, unaccounted-for teacher Monsieur Chouchani. From a broader philosophical perspective, the article attempts to consider the meaning of ethics and the assumption of responsibility in times when doing so appears to offer no benefit and hold no significance whatsoever. From an educational perspective, it endeavors to better understand the ethical role of the teacher in both tranquil and tempestuous times. And finally, it also offers another profound observation of what Lévinas’s article refers to as the “Jewish condition,” not in a national historical sense but as a model of crisis-oriented ethical challenge.

We’ve just learned the sad news: Elie Wiesel, Auschwitz Survivor and Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Dies at 87. Baruch Dayan Emet (Blessed is the True Judge).

We had the privilege to meet him and to interview him last year in New York.
Elie Wiesel was happy to talk about his mentor and master Shoshani (Chouchani).

We believe this was his last filmed interview.

Pearls of Chouchani – Pearl number 1

Pearls of Chouchani – Pearl number 1
Pniney Chouchani 01

Read Proverbs 3,29 “Do not plow (plot) harm against your neighbor, who lives trustfully near you”
and Job 4,8 “As I have observed, those who plow evil and those who sow trouble reap it.”

The Thought = Plowing

Action = Sowing

The Result  = Harvest

Perles de Chouchani – perle numéro 1

Lire Proverbes 3,29 “Ne laboure (médite) pas le mal contre ton prochain, Lorsqu’il demeure tranquillement près de toi.”
et Job 4,8 “Selon ce que j’ai vu, ceux qui labourent l’iniquité et qui sèment la misère, la moissonnent”

La pensée = labourer

L’action = semer

Le résultat = la récolte

“הרב אליהו אביחיל ז”ל על שושני “לפי כל מיני פרטים, שנלקטו פה ושם, הוא היה, כנראה, יליד מרוקו

הרב אליהו אביחיל הלך לעולמו לפני כמה ימים, זכרונו לברכה.
הרב אביחיל ידוע כאיש שנלחם כל חייו כדי לחפש ולהעלות לארץ את השבטים האבודים, מעט אנשים יודעים שהוא גם למד עם מר שושני – בן שושן כפי שהוא קרא לו, שהוא פגש בקיבוץ סעד.
הוא כתב על מר שושני בספרו : “היה גאון עצום, שלא מצויים כמוהו בעולם.” (…) “לפי כל מיני פרטים, שנלקטו פה ושם, הוא היה, כנראה, יליד מרוקו שלמד בישיבות ליטאיות.”
הינה כמה קטעים מהראיון שלו לסרט.

Au delà de la légende – Beyond the Legend

“Ses disciples d’un an ou d’une nuit me disaient : “Le Juif errant dans votre livre, c’est bien Rav Shushani, n’est-ce pas?”books-elie-wiesel-1280x960
Je pensais avoir exagéré à dessein ; pourtant j’ai à peine décrit la vérité. Oui, il avait visité des pays exotiques et contrées lointaines ; oui, il semblait intemporel sinon immortel ; oui, il se comportait comme un des Lamed-vavnik qui entrent en exil et choisissent l’anonymat avant d’offrir le salut à leur semblables ; oui, il avait des pouvoirs ; oui, il fascinait, il exaltait, il troublait, il humiliait, il accomplissait en vous, pour vous, des changements dépassant l’entendement.”

Elie Wiesel dans “Paroles d’étranger”

————————————-

“Translation” by Elie Wiesel himself:

“His disciples of one year, or one night, took pains to tell me they were not fooled: “The Wandering Jew, in your book, is Rav Shushani, isn’t it?”
I myself thought I had exaggerated; yet I had told the truth. Yes, he did visit faraway countries; yes he did receive unusually high fees for his lectures, fees he then gave to charity; yes he did behave like one of the hidden Just Men who enter exile and anonymity before offering salvation to their fellow men; yes, he was greater than the legend surrounding his person.”
