Well-written and thought-provoking selections Feb 11, 2003
Collaboratively compiled and edited by Rabbi Naftali Rothenberg (Senior Fellow at the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute) and Eliezer Schweid (Professor of Jewish Philosophy, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem), Jewish Identity In Modern Israel: Proceedings On Secular Judaism And Democracy is an impressive and informative collection of articles by a variety of different writers, each offering distinct viewpoints and delivered in the conferences of the Framework for Contemporary Jewish Thought and Identity at the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute. Some contributors are Jewish; some are Arab, and many are authors, educators, MKs or Rabbis. Fluidly translated into English, these articles address the goals of teaching Judaism to secular Jews, how education should be presented in a Jewish and Democratic state, being an Arab Citizen in a Jewish and Democratic state (including doubts and misgivings), and much, much more. A strongly recommended addition to Judaic Studies reference collections and academic reading lists, Jewish Identity In Modern Israel offers the reader a compendium of well-written and thought-provoking selections.
