Today’s Jewish Thinkers

I am currently reading Rabbi Marc Angel’s Maimonides, Spinoza, and Us: Towards an Intellectually Vibrant Judaism.

In this book, Rabbi Marc D. Angel discusses major themes in the writings of Maimonides and Spinoza as a means of exploring how modern people can deal with religion in an intellectually honest and meaningful way.

After Stéphane Moses last week, I find it inspiring to read Jewish thinkers who encourage us to think and make sensible choices while not turning off our brains. Similarly I also enjoy what Rabbi Jonathan Sacks writes.

What about you, who are the contemporary Jewish thinkers that stimulate you?
