The Torah as G-d's Song
To make the Torah live anew, it is not enough to hand it on cognitively – as mere history and law. It must speak to us affectively, emotionally.
Defeating Death
What is missing from the Torah, almost inexplicably so given the background against which it is set, is a fixation with death.
Why Be Jewish?
A bat or bar mitzvah is not a “confirmation.” It involves no voluntary acceptance of Jewish identity. That choice took place more than three thousand years ago.
