Filled with wisdom and gentle humor, here is the essential book on Judaism's traditions and practices from the bestselling author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People. Both practical and spiritual, Kushner makes Jewish tradition relevant to a new generation as he explores its many facets.
This chapter is actually a great chapter. I had a huge writeup about it but I guess my program decided it was going to eat it. Basically, this book is for everyone. It also stresses the concept of "Who is a Jew" into a more broader term. It has always been more than just a religion. It's a
Summary of many of the bible stories. I don't think this adds a lot to the book.
The calander. I like this calendar as it is much more like the calendar that I've been working with as a Wiccan. The lunar based system makes sense to me.
A reference to God as being able to be both male and female! "Functionally God is both male and female"! "people live on in our hearts, in the difference they made to the world, and in the mind of God"
Overall, I really like the book, it makes a lot of sense to me. I would love to have dinner with the man.
