Sacred Space Is Where God Dwells and Hearts Are Moved
He argues that the challenges of modernity and the need to confront the Holocaust have undermined traditional conceptions of Judaism. Belief in an objective ground for the rules of conduct that sustained our ancestors and sustains traditional Jews today is problematic for modern Jews. Morgan believes that what is required now is a search for grounds capable of supporting Judaism well into the twenty-first century.
In Interim Judaism he undertakes "a preliminary probing of the territory" xi and concludes that "[we] are at a moment of great uncertainty, lacking definitive answers; nonetheless, we recognize the mandate to a committed Jewish life" xiv. These Kallot afford laypersons an opportunity to study the Torah, Talmud, and later commentary and much else with seminary and university faculty.

I believe his argument to be persuasive and accessible to a general audience. Beyond Auschwitz"is a book of philosophy and religious thought that involves a religious encounter with an episode in recent Jewish thought and life" viii.

These changes brought with them alienation, isolation, and despair. More information about this seller Contact this seller 5.
