9781416536024: Being Jewish: The Spiritual and Cultural Practice of Judaism Today

Increasing numbers of Jews are returning to their religious roots in a search for meaning, eager to explore a heritage that is deeply embedded in history and at the same time rapidly changing. But what is Judaism today? And what does it mean -- culturally, spiritually, and ritually -- to be Jewish in the twenty-first century?

In Being Jewish, Ari L. Goldman offers eloquent, thoughtful answers to these questions through an absorbing exploration of modern Judaism. A bestselling author and widely respected chronicler of Jewish life, Goldman vividly contrasts the historical meaning of Judaism's heritage with the astonishing and multiform character of the religion today. The result will be a revelation for those already involved with Judaism and a fascinating introduction for those whose interests are newly minted or rekindled.
This inspiring volume encourages us to find our own place within the tradition and leads us into a deeper understanding not just of the details of the religion but, ultimately, of what it means to be Jewish.

Review:

Being Jewish: The Spiritual and Cultural Practice of Judaism Today begins with a legend. "In the months before a Jewish child is born, it is visited in the womb by the Angel Gabriel. There, in the warmth and silence of the mother's body, the angel teaches the baby all of Jewish learning--the Torah, the rituals, the holidays, the deepest truths of Jewish wisdom. The baby absorbs it all, just as it takes nourishment from its mother. But suddenly, as the baby is about to be thrust into the world to eat and breathe on its own, the angel presents it with a similar intellectual challenge. Right before birth, Gabriel strikes the child on the upper lip, and all the teachings are instantly forgotten." Being Jewish, by the former New York Times religion reporter Ari L. Goldman, takes up where the legend of "Gabriel and the Infants" leaves off. The book presumes, as the legend suggests, that "Jewish knowledge is not external, removed from life, but something inside: the very stuff of life that must be reckoned and recovered." Incorporating elements of memoir, history, theology, and cultural criticism, Goldman's book is a guide for the rediscovery of Judaism's essential traditions, organized in three sections that correspond to cycles of Jewish life ("The Jewish Life," "The Jewish Year," and "The Jewish Day"). This is a beautifully written distillation of the learning and wisdom of one of the best religion journalists of our time. --Michael Joseph Gross
