A welcoming introduction to the most important ideas in Judaism.

In an age of fluid identity, many people are honestly asking the question "Why be Jewish?" Is there anything to this religious and ethnic legacy that is worth preserving? Having struggled against all odds to survive for so many centuries, does Judaism have something unique to offer a contemporary seeker who is free to choose a way of religious life and a system of values?

Here is the answer of a leading spiritual teacher who has faced this question in conversation with generations of students over five decades. In ten brief chapters, each illuminated by classical stories or personal narratives, Rabbi Green lays out his argument for ongoing commitment to Jewish memory and Judaism's unique approach to universal truth. He shows in completely accessible ways what it is that kept him loyal to the tradition passed down to him, even as he understood the great need to allow for change, including those coming from the East, in our age of diverse spiritual learning and transformation.

Drawing mainly from the Jewish mystical tradition, he presents in brief form gems of personal wisdom derived from ancient Kabbalistic writings and the Hasidic masters. The result is an inspiring door opener to timeless Jewish wisdom, one that will entice the reader to look further, both into Green's own writings and toward the original sources.
