The name “GUR ARYEH”
The expression in Hebrew "Gur Aryeh" means "lion cub" or "young lion". In the Book of the Genesis it was used by Jacob (Israel) in his prophecy to his twelve sons, shortly before he died, when he referred to his son Judah.
He said: "A cub and a grown lion is Judah. From the prey, my son, you withdrew. He crouched, rested like a lion, and like a lion, who will rouse him?"(Genesis 49: 9).
A BRIGHT FUTURE
A wonderful future in the humanity history is rapidly approaching. In that time God will be internalized in all human affairs in diverse ways with pervasive unity. New ways of knowledge will spring from the 'heaven' and 'earth' to fertilize our science and technology and a universal ethics will conduct the geopolitics and our social life in all its levels and forms.
We can recognize already some signs and seeds which are preparing that future and since now we can start to think and live in creative ways anticipating the brightness of that time through the recognition the Creator’s attributes in the nature and in the history.
Like a lion cub that learns to walk and hunt and grows up until to be a mature lion, the Gur Aryeh Institute begins its first steps of our contribution to this historic process.
The objective of the Gur Aryeh Institute is show God behind the Nature and the History. For that we develop research, educational and artistic activities approaching important challenging issues about the Nature, the human being and the relation between God and the Universe.
We implement our goal by incorporating conceptually God's attributes in all sciences and arts in innovative ways to bring new understanding about the natural and social laws and their relationship with the spiritual nature of the man.
Inspired by the Jewish Kabbalah's metaphysical concepts we conduct interdisciplinary research on relevant issues using and developing concepts and tools from of philosophy, arts and sciences.
We diffuse knowledge through articles, books, videos and virtual courses, seminars, conferences and high-cultural level artistic events.
We are people moved by constructive
dreams for the society.
