A TIME FOR CHANGE explores the root causes of the various societal trends within the Jewish world today and challenges to a large degree their Jewish authenticity. A central thesis of this book is that all Jews today, including the religious, follow far more closely a Christian ethic rather than Jewish ideals. The author covers the entire spectrum of the Jewish world, from the secular to the religious, and discusses a great range of topics including religious experience, science , horoscopes, homosexuality, polygamy, materialism versus spirituality, vegetarianism, Rabbinic Judaism, the meaning of the Land and State of Israel, war and peace, intellectual arrogance, the Israeli–Palestinian conflict and many more relevant issues. This book pulls no punches and not many sacred cows emerge unscathed. Warning: Not for the timid.
