Contemporary Orthodox Judaism's Response to Modernity
KTAV Publishing House, Inc., 2004 - 343 pàgines
Orthodox Judaism is an ideology that has a recognized niche in today's society, both secular and Jewish. However, it is often misunderstood in general or in its specifics by some of its adherents and certainly by those who do not live by its tenets. In Contemporary Orthodox Judaism's Response to Modernity, Rabbi Barry Freundel, in thirty-two relatively brief essays, summarizes Orthodox Jewish teaching on a variety of issues. These range from topics as central to the religious experience as prayer and Messiah, to those as contemporary as abortion and life on other planets. For the student, the seeker and even for those more knowledgeable this volume will provide much information, food for thought and source material to aid in understanding one of mankind's most ancient religious traditions and its continued vibrancy and relevance in the twenty-first century.
