HEART OF MANY ROOMSUser Review - Book Verdict
In these 16 powerful and profound essays, Hartman (emeritus, Hebrew Univ.; Joy and Responsibility and A Living Covenant: The Innovative Spirit in Traditional Judaism) again analyzes contemporary Jewish life and practice from a traditional Jewish perspective. Seeing Judaism as an interpretive tradition, he explores with depth and grace such topics as the Torah, the State of Israel and its commitment to all Jews, the crisis of the modern family, Jewish education, Abraham Joshua Heschel and Jewish pluralism, and Zionism and the future of Israel, calling for a shared spiritual language and a celebration of the unity as well as the diversity of the Jewish experience.
