HaRav Wolbe's Attitude to Torah and to Torah Im Derech Eretz

In the wake of the recent correspondence in London's Jewish Tribune about HaRav Wolbe's view on Torah- im- Derech Eretz, the following extracts from his sefer Alei Shur (vol. I p. 295) are relevant. It should be noted that the issue here is the view of HaRav Wolbe in light of his background. (The translation is literal, and all bracketed notes are in the original unless otherwise indicated.)

A Purposeful Goal - For Life

by HaRav Chaim Pinchas Scheinberg

Part II

When HaKodosh Boruch Hu revealed Himself at Har Sinai in order to give Klal Yisroel the Torah, thousands upon thousands of mal'ochim accompanied Him. They were arrayed under banners. Eventually Klal Yisroel also was organized under banners. These banners signify the identity and task that each tribe and each individual has in life. Hashem put everyone into the world for a mission suited to his or her individual abilities. This mission must be fulfilled. A person will be forced to come into the world again if he leaves the world without having fulfilled the mission that Hashem set for him. That is what it means that we are created against our will.

Torah Knowledge and Other Knowledge

by Mordecai Plaut

We are completely different since that Shavuos, having received the Torah. We would not want to imagine ourselves as we would be without the Torah, but in modern times there are all too many, and all too powerful, demonstrations of the depths to which man can sink all around us.
