Description:
Crisis, Covenant and Creativity deals with some of the most widely discussed issues in contemporary Jewish religious life.

How do religious people deal with tolerance when they are convinced that their religious beliefs carry the truth and that others are mistaken? To what extent should the modern application of Halachic decision making be influenced by existential wonder and the religious mission and philosophy of the Jewish people? How does Halachic living lead to a greater awareness of the mystery and beauty of life? As the search for Jewish Identity becomes more and more complex, what is the meaning of Jewish authenticity in light of Jean Paul Sartre s understanding of anti-Semitism?

Rabbi Dr. Nathan Lopes Cardozo is a world renowned thinker, lecturer, and ambassador for Judaism and the Jewish people. He is known for his original insights into how Judaism relates to and remains relevant in our complex, modern times.
