Judaism for Everyone ... without Dogma represents a major contribution to the advancement of contemporary Judaism. It argues for a secular Judaism rooted in Jewish culture and humanistic and democratic values, for Jewish communities that respect pluralism, for a dialogue between Diaspora and the State of Israel that fosters the richness, and diversity of the Jewish people. For all these reasons, I strongly recommend this book. --Yossi Beilin, Former Israel MP (Member of the Knesset), Minister of Religious Affairs, Justice, Economics and Planning, and leading participant in both the Oslo accords and the Geneva Peace Initiative.
Bernardo Sorj has powerfully articulated the historical, and cultural grounding of the movement of Secular Humanistic Judaism. From the beginnings of Jewish evolution to today's Jewish diversity, his insightful analysis of the modern Jewish experience, and his message of acceptance will resonate with cultural Jews worldwide. --Rabbi Adam Chalom, Dean - North America, International Institute for Secular Humanistic Judaism
Judaism for Everyone ... without Dogma offers a brilliant new approach to the future of an ancient people. Prof. Bernardo Sorj's deep acquaintance with Jewish history, Jewish tradition, and the state of Jews around the world today, led him to the conclusion, that the way to save Judaism from extinction is to take the keys of the gates to Judaism from the religious establishment. New Judaism should be pluralistic, democratic, and open to everyone. --Nahum Barnea, Political Scientist and Journalist, awarded with the Israel Prize for Communication in 2007
