In Judaism for Everyone, Rabbi Boteach turns his outspoken energy and vast erudition to the core teachings of Judaism itself, presenting the Jewish faith as a spiritual system uniquely attuned to the needs of modern men and women of all religions. Identifying the principles of Judaism that animate its ritual framework, he positions Judaism as a source of inspiration and a science of human living for people who desire spiritual purpose as well as material success.
Unlike the dualist credo of other religions in which the material and spiritual are always in conflict Judaism, argues Boteach, uniquely represents a philosophy that concerns itself with life in this world, rather than in the hereafter. Judaism for Everyone explores the Jewish and Biblical origins of civilization's seminal moral ideas and presents Judaism as a program of action to internalize these concepts within the heart of man and society. Boteach's interpretations and commentary are a vibrant celebration of the dynamism that is Judaism. Whether he's peppering his points with stories from his childhood, promoting feminism and decrying boredom, or extolling the virtues of leisure and solitude, he never fails to inform, inspire and surprise. This is a book for any man or woman seeking a universal moral creed to maximize human goodness and inner potential, and enrich their lives with the vibrant insights of the world's oldest faith.
