Item description for Scm Reader Reform Judaism and Modernity by Jonathan A. Romain...

Reform Judaism is one of the most dynamic forces in the Jewish world. It dominates American Jewry, is bridging gaps in secular Jewish communities in Israel and occupies a leading place in the religious life of Britain today. It is instrumental in the rejuvenation of Jews within the former Soviet Union and in Europe it has helped to rekindle the embers of Jewish communities devastated by the Holocaust. And yet books offering access to Reform Judaism material and original sources are distinctly rare. Reform Judaism and Modernity: A Reader therefore is a unique opportunity for students of Reform Judaism, and those with a general interest in Judaism, to enjoy fully the wide range of writings that are here presented as the essence of Reform Judaism.

Publishers Description
It is astonishing that one of the most dynamic forces in British religious life Reform Judaism should have waited till now for a comprehensive survey of its beliefs and theology. There may be a general decline in religious affiliation in the country at large, but Reform Judaism is bucking the trend and growing through the way it marries tradition and modernity, keeping the best of the past but adopting to present realities and new insights. But what does Reform Judaism stand for? What does it believe? The book examines 26 key questions facing not only Jews today but anyone concerned with religious issues and moral dilemmas, from the Afterlife to Business Ethics, from Social Action to Suffering. The themes are traced in chronological development through the writings of prominent rabbis as they wrestle with major questions of faith and modernity. Each passage is preceded by an explanatory note and followed by a comment, allowing the reader to interact with the texts. The book reflects a fascinating spiritual journey from the past into the present, which will resonate with all interested in religious debate. This groundbreaking study will leave readers both informed and challenged.
