Item description for Judaism on Trial: An Unconventional Discussion about Jews, Judaism and the State of Israel by Nathan Lopes Cardozo...

Arguing that science and anti-religious philosophy are not responsible for the decline of Judaism, Rabbi Cardozo says it is those who teach it that make Judaism appear irrelevant to the needs and problems of modern man. Jewish law and custom are taught as a dogmatic creed and no longer contains the exciting spontaneity of worship, while remaining formalistic, replacing love with habit. Instead, the author believes that Judaism must reflect deep compassion to recapture the flowing fountain of a glorious tradition-if not, all becomes meaningless. The author is dean of the David Cardozo School for Jewish Studies and Human Dignity.

Reviews - What do customers think about Judaism on Trial: An Unconventional Discussion about Jews, Judaism and the State of Israel?

Exactly as Represented  Feb 19, 2006
Rabbi Lopes Cardozo's book: "Judaism on Trial" is precisely as it is represented and no reader will be disappointed by this honest assessment of a wide range of issues facing the Jewish community. He does so with wit and wisdom and great sensitivity. Further, he offers honest assessments of deficiencies in the Orthodox world and makes common cause with all Jews under the umbrella of our foundational principles.

The format is not well organized and the reader is left wanting more detail and this is why I give it four out of five stars. Further, the format of an unnamed student asking questions and responding to what he has said is not a terribly effective device and if the points are not clear, Rabbi Lopes Cardozzo can edit his own writing and make it clear without bringing in a "student" to keep the "discussion" on track. After all, this is a statement and an extended argument and not a "discussion."

The author does not shy away from controversy and hits many topics head-on, all the while demonstrating both his concern for how the tradition stands up on trial and how it needs to be protected and promoted in the larger Jewish world.

It is truly sad that this work does not have wide circulation in our community and I am pleased to lend my hand to encourage readers to buy this book and take its message to heart.
Seeking out the real questions   Dec 6, 2004
Rabbi Lopes- Cardozo is one of those Jewish thinkers who seeks to confront the real problems of the modern Jewish world. He addresses these problems with deep seriousness and knowledge. He is alert to the present- day situation of Israel and often his comments on present reality are insightful and original. This work should be read by those for whom the situation of the Jewish people is important.
