    The Bible sets the tone for such questioning. In the Book of Exodus () we read: "And when, in time to come, your son asks you, saying, `What does this mean?' you shall say to him, `It was with a mighty hand that the Lord brought us out of Egypt, the house of bondage.'".   The book, Torat Hamalech (The King’s Torah), discusses the rules of war and states that in certain situations, non-Jews can be killed. The book has attracted a firestorm of controversy since Author: YAAKOV LAPPIN.

    Sand's book deals with questions that remain taboo in Israeli society, among them the ancestral origins of the Jewish people and the genetic lineage shared with modern-day Israelis. Past winners of the prize include French intellectual Raymond Aron, literary critic George Steiner, author Milan Kundera, and historian Francois : Maya Sela.   I have no idea about other religions however, regarding Islam, not only questioning is allowed but also Islam encourages and commands people to ask. For instance, the verse of Qur’an, > فَسْئَلُوا أَهْلَ الذِّكْرِ إِنْ كُنْتُمْ لا تَعْلَمُو.

    To Bronfman, Judaism is rooted not in love for and obedience to God, but in a posture of constant questioning. He must have known this is not a traditional reading — again, I can’t ask him. Linfield’s book has been reviewed in the New York Times, Commentary magazine, and the Nation. “Reclaiming Judaism” has not, as far as I know, been reviewed by any mainstream publication. Yet, this is an important book that deserves more attention. My sense is that it is the more balanced work.

Due to COVID, orders may be : It is surprising that the sometimes tumultuous book of Bamidbar commences with such a prosaic passage as the taking of a census: And Hashem (God) spoke to Moshe (Moses) in the wilderness of Sinai, in the Tent of Meeting, on the first day of the second month, in the second year of their coming out from the land of Egypt, saying: Take a census of all the congregation of the Children of Israel by.

The Genius of Judaism contains some wonderfully interesting things to ponder, but I found it difficult to follow the author's jumps between subjects at times. On the whole, there were times that the book felt rambling, but the moments of clarity that shone through made it worth the read/5.

Questioning is awesome. It leads to unexpected discoveries, theories, new ideas, surprising revelations think of history without Freud, Salk, Spielberg, Einstein and you’re “staring into a black hole in civilization” (Orson Welles, a Judeoph.

In this entertaining and accessible book, she shows us why Judaism matters and how its message is more relevant than ever, and she inspires Jews to do the learning, questioning, and debating required to make this religion their own. This is one of the oldest monotheistic religions in the entire world, spanning a period of more than years.

The children of Israel have had a long history and yet their religion has stood firm for millennia. The questions you will have to answer on Judaism will not be easy ones but if you are acquainted with some of its traditions and some of the holy objects related to it you should be fine.

“The mitzvah can be seen as a means of linking Pesach, the season of our liberation, to its ultimate fulfillment in Shavuot, the season of the giving of Torah. There is no ‘freedom’, in other words, without Torah, without a system of meaning to be found in Jewish life and existence,” writes Rabbi Mark Washofsky in his book Jewish Living.

In Judaism, we can affirm the existence of God without suspending either our reason or our questioning. Indeed, for the Jew, reason and questioning should ultimately be a source of affirmation that there is a God, and that ultimately there is meaning to my life -- and yes, even to my ed on: Ap   Judaism does not have a specific credo that Jews must accept in order to be considered Jewish.

Nevertheless, there are a few overarching tenets that most Jews accept in some form. These include a belief in only One God, a belief that humanity was created in the Divine Image, a feeling of connection to the greater Jewish community and a belief in the pivotal importance of the Torah, our Author: Ariela Pelaia.

The Truth About Paul: Why do Christians believe Paul. Considering the consequence, should faith in Paul’s promises be proven unreliable, should it be demonstrated beyond any reasonable doubt that the author of half of the Christian New Testament consistently and deliberately contradicted God, nothing is more important than questioning Paul’s thirteen letters: Galatians, 1 & 2 Corinthians.

A renowned political speechwriter rediscovers Judaism, finding timeless wisdom and spiritual connection in its age-old practices and traditions.“Sarah Hurwitz was Michelle Obama’s head speechwriter, and with this book she becomes Judaism’s speechwriter.”—Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take, Originals, and co-author of Opt.

Jewish identity is a question mark because a critical constituent of it is, if anything else, the enterprise of questioning itself.

If I were to choose one precept of rabbinic Judaism that ensured Jewish survival more than any other, it would be the classical Rabbis' interpretation of Deuteron-omy's assertion it is not in Heaven.Questioning Circumcision book.
