Future Tense : A Vision for Jews and Judaism in the Global Culture, Paperback

Future Tense : A Vision for Jews and Judaism in the Global Culture Paperback


Historically, Jews have thought of themselves in terms of the biblical phrase, 'The people that dwells alone.' In the current global environment, this is dangerous.

It leads to the isolation of Jews, Judaism and Israel.

Too much contemporary Jewish writing is self-referential: Jews talking to Jews, preaching to the converted.

Yet Jews cannot cure anti-Semitism alone. We need to persuade Jews and non-Jews alike that Jews, Judaism and Israel have something unique to contribute to the future.FUTURE TENSE does this.

It moves beyond the 'they hate us' school of Jewish thought to provide an overarching vision for the future of Judaism, Jewish life and Israel for the twenty-first century.
