The Spiritual and Cultural Practice of Judasim Today By Ari L Goldman (288 Pages)2000
Increasing numbers of Jews are returning to their religious roots in a search for meaning, eager to explore a heritage that is deeply embedded in history and at the same time rapidly changing. But what is Judaism today? And what does it mean -- culturally, spiritually, and ritually -- to be Jewish in the twenty-first century?
The former New York Times religion reporter incorporates memoir, history, theology, and cultural criticism and presents a guide for the rediscovery of Judaism's essential traditions, organized in three sections :"The Jewish Life," "The Jewish Year," and "The Jewish Day"
