Must a Jew Believe Anything?

Author : Menachem Kellner

Available : YES
Age Group :Adults
One of the central questions confronting the Jewish community in assimilation friendly United States and Western Europe is whether or note their grandchildren will be Jewish. Menachem Kellner (Sire Isaac and Lady Edith Wolfson Professor of Jewish Religious Thought, University of Haifa) addresses the core concern and provides a coherent and persuasive analysis of what religious faith means in classical Judaism. He concludes with arguing for a new way of construing the relationship of Orthodox to non-Orthodox Jewish and Jewish institutions. Must A Jew Believe Anything? is an invaluable, timely, and much appreciated contribution to Judaic Studies collections and reading lists.
