I have just received The new issue of Conversations, the journal of the Institute for Jewish Ideas and Ideals. This issue deals with Orthodoxy: Family and Gender Issues. I had not realized the journal had been released so it was a nice surprise to find it when I came back from work today.
A few days ago I ordered Maimonides, Spinoza and Us: Toward an Intellectually Vibrant Judaism.
After a conversation with Jewishes via a post I checked Rabbi Jonathan Sacks’s latest book on the Internet and decided to purchase: Covenant & Conversation, A Weekly Reading of the Jewish Bible, Genesis: The Book of Beginnings.
I find that Rabbi Sacks is one of the greatest Jewish thinkers of our generation so thanks to this book I hope to continue to post reflections and insights on the weekly parshah every week.
