Description

"Judaism in a Post-Halakhic Age" tackles the following questions: What is Halakhah, and what role has it played in the creative survival of the Jewish people for two millennia? Why is Halakhah no longer capable of functioning as it has until now? What sort of polity and religious culture can be recommended to replace the Halakhic tradition in an era of freedom, democracy, scientific research and religious pluralism? The author, however, out of his great respect for the Halakhic culture, asks what it can still contribute to Jewish civilisation and the advance of a united humanity.

Author Biography

Rabbi Dr. Jack J. Cohen has had a long distinguished career as an educator, author and public servant. Before settling in Israel in 1961, he served as the Educational Director of Park Synagogue in Cleveland, the Director of the Jewish Reconstructionist Foundation, and the Rabbi of the Society for the Advancement of Judaism. During the last six and a half years of his tenure in the States, he also taught courses in the philosophy of religion and education at the Jewish Theological Seminary. In Israel, Dr. Cohen served for 23 years as the Director of the Hillel Foundation at Hebrew University and taught an annual seminar for students of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College and a course in Jewish thought at the David Yellin College of Education. Dr. Cohen has been widely published in Jewish journals and is the author of a number of books, among them The Case for Religious Naturalism, Jewish Education in Democratic Society, The Reunion of Isaac and Ishmael, Guides for an Age of Confusion and Major Philosophers of Jewish Prayer in the 20th Century.
