At a time when religion in general and Judaism in particular has been sliding all too swiftly toward the right, Michael Rosenak presents us with an enlightened and moving series of essays that make belief and Jewish observance plausible, profound and endearing to those who refuse to be pushed to the extremes. He shows there is still a place for religion that can speak to the modern person who resists extremism, exclusivity, and intolerance. Treasure this book.

Michael Rosenak is the premier philosopher of Jewish education. What makes his work so special is his deep grounding in Jewish texts, Jewish thought, educational philosophy and educational theory, and his ability to bring concepts from each of these domains into conversation with one another. Everyone with an interest in Jewish education will find much to think about in this collection of essays.
