I am writing a Masters paper on Reconstructionism and Kaplan for the International Institute for Secular Humanistic Judaism, where I am a Rabbinic candidate. This book was immensely helpful in doing my research.

Kaplan was a prolific, and in certain ways heroic figure.But his ideas and his whole view - of - the -world did not bring about true Jewish renewal. And the long- term beneficial results of his effort seem to be minor indeed.
