About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The author seems to want people to believe in the Torah and what it says. He emphasizes the importance of understanding poverty and giving charity or as in hebrew Tzeddakah.
The discussion about the holocaust is reasonable. However the author's change in attitude about the formation and development of the state of Israel is mixed. The author at first favor the state of Israel but dislikes much after the 1967 War. The issue is what are the Palestinians and Arabs doing to help keep the peace? The suicide bomber attacks are NOT an answer. Isrel can be a little less aggressive regarding border issues but they have received their share of hardship from the Palestinains. The author needs to discuss this a little more. At least she is not a self hating Jew/Israeli which gives me some hope.
Different strokes for different folks. Good account of Progressive Judiasm. Possibly a broader and slightly more balanced disussion might help.
