Dr. Borowitz is a schol­ar and edu­ca­tor whose works tran­scend any par­tic­u­lar move­ment or approach to Judaism and to Jew­ish beliefs. In this book, he and coau­thor Frances Schwartz present a diverse series of brief essays, each of which address­es a par­tic­u­lar ques­tion or issue of Jew­ish the­ol­o­gy. The authors have select­ed their top­ics with care, so the read­er is treat­ed to thoughts about God, prayer, Jew­ish texts, Jew­ish thinkers, and much more. Each essay is an intro­duc­tion to a top­ic; read­ers can use this book as a sur­vey and then fol­low up with fur­ther study and reflec­tion of the themes that speak to them. Bib­li­og­ra­phy, glossary.
Rab­bi Arnold D. Sam­lan is a Jew­ish edu­ca­tor and rab­bi liv­ing in Mia­mi, Flori­da. He serves as exec­u­tive direc­tor of the Orloff Cen­tral Agency for Jew­ish Edu­ca­tion of Broward County.
