Item description for Renewing the Vision: Rabbis Speak Out on Modern Jewish Issues: Essays Marking the Fortieth Anniversary of the Leo Baeck College by Leo Baeck College & Jonathan Romain...
n a disbelieving world, what do Jews today believe? Where is God in a post-Holocaust world? How does Judaism tackle practical concerns, such as mental illness, euthanasia, the ecology and new sexual mores? Does it need to be repackaged for a media world of God-slots and religious sound-bites? What is the relationship between Jews and their non-Jewish neighbours? Is British Jewry about to disappear or will its fortunes revive? Revewing the Vision is a remarkable collection of essays by twenty-four rabbis which celebrates the fortieth anniversary of the Leo Baeck College. The wide-ranging essays illustrate how they seek both to transmit the Judaism of the past yet reinterpret it daringly for new situations. This major new publication is essential reading for anyone interested in the challenges facing Jewish life today. Renewing the Vision is edited by Rabbi Dr Jonathan Romain and contains essays by Tony Bayfield, Lionel Blue, Jonathan Magonet, Julia Neuberger and many other leading rabbis. Jonathan Romain is a rabbi, broadcaster and writer. He serves as the minister of Maidenhead Synagogue.
