The Non-Jewish Jew, a collection of Deutscher’s essays on Jewish subjects that first appeared in 1968 and that has just been reissued by the radical publishing house Verso, begins with a biographical sketch by his widow, Tamara Deutscher, organized around the image of vaulting a historical gulf. “That gulf was so immense that it baffled and fascinated him,” she writes. “It both amazed.Read More

The Haver Ha-Ir model of rabbinic leadership deserves careful attention. The rabbi is literally to be a “friend” of the city, a person who is engaged in people’s lives, who strives to make society a better place. He is to feel personal responsibility for the spiritual and material wellbeing of the community. The Haver Ha-Ir is not an aloof scholar nor an otherworldly mystic, but is with.Read More
Many controversies in other branches of liberal Judaism are non-issues within Secular Humanistic Judaism. For example, a 1988 resolution on “Who is a Jew” accepted self-determination, stating: “A Jew is a person of Jewish descent or any person who declares himself or herself to be a Jew and who identifies with the history, ethical values, culture, civilization, community, and fate of the.Read More
In essence, Jewish culture was bottom-up, while Christian culture was top-down. Abrahams details the physical establishment of the synagogue, as well as the customary dress, the separation of the sexes in ritual and prayer, the sale of religious “honors,” the variety of regional music, and other matters that may be interesting and informative to students of Jewish history.Read More
