Description:
What is the weight of tradition when it conflicts with your own deep moral sense? The world s leading Modern Orthodox Jewish theologian probes the deepest questions at the heart of what it means to be a human being and a Jew.

This is a deeply personal look at the struggle between commitment to Jewish religious tradition and personal morality. Renowned Jewish philosopher Dr. David Hartman, winner of the National Jewish Book Award, draws on a lifetime of learning, teaching and experience to present an intellectual framework for examining covenantal theology as it is applied to religious life. Tracking his own intellectual and spiritual development as an Orthodox Jew and spiritual thinker, he probes some of the most profound questions of inner religious conflict:
  • How does a person justify commitment to Jewish law when it conflicts with a person s deep moral sense?
  • Does personal intuition have a place in Jewish tradition?
  • Is making choices that favor moral convictions equivalent to stepping out of the tradition?
  • What is lost personally, communally and religiously when a person squelches his or her ethical impulse in adherence to religious tradition?
As much an expression of his impassioned commitment to Jewish law as it is testament to a lifetime of intellectual questioning and courage, this bold examination of the halakhic system offers fresh insights into Judaism and the quest for spiritual nourishment.
