Remix Judaism: Preserving Tradition in a Diverse World offers a uniquely creative vision of Judaism for all Jews seeking a sense of belonging in a changing world, regardless of their current level of observance. Aimed specifically at those Jews in the United States and elsewhere who want to craft a more meaningful Jewish existence (for themselves and their children) outside the parameters of a strictly observant lifestyle, Remix Judaism sets out a process of selection, rejection, and modification of rituals that focuses on a celebration of Jewish tradition rather than on the obligations of Jewish law. This remixed approach to Judaism emphasizes the consistent observance of authentic rituals, however one chooses to interpret and perform them. The book educates readers by incorporating Talmudic and other narratives as well as sociological studies and historical content. Chapters cover topics ranging from food and holiday celebrations to marriage and mourning, and collectively illustrate how readers can better define their individual and family Jewish journeys by mindfully crafting patterns of joyful observance that are simultaneously authentic and adaptable.
