What does it mean that we are spiritual beings? In tackling this important issue, this book argues that Judaism possesses a core of wisdom that appeals to Jews and non-Jews alike, and rejects Judaism seeking piety in abstractions, in rationalising injustice, in explaining the Holocaust away as a punishment for assimilation. It pleads for recognition of the fact that, unlike Christianity, Judaism is not about death or suffering, but primarily about seeking optimism and spirituality. In a modern world riddled with angst, this book aims to have a positive impact on how our relation to society should be understood.
