The eloquent, eye-opening essays in Think Jewish - an instant classic since its publication in 1978 - have been reprinted in a brand new edition. Thankfully, only the font, typesetting, and cover have been altered; the words remain as on-target as ever. Think Jewish slices through the niggling conflicts that block a Jew from living Jewish.

Each of the 26 chapters opens with a tough question... "Can’t I be good without being religious?" "Wouldn’t mankind be better off without labels that separate?" "Aren’t mitzvot restricting?" The answers, which turn Western thought inside out, are down-to-earth and delivered in deftly polished prose. Think Jewish has the power to change minds... for the better.
