9781580234351: A Man's Responsibility: A Jewish Guide to Being a Son, a Partner in Marriage, a Father and a Community Leader

What is Jewish men's spirituality? In today's world, is it necessary?

A provocative look at how a new generation of Jewish men can grow spiritually, and in doing so, strengthen the intangible bonds of family, love, duty and truth which ultimately lead to God. It unearths the male stereotypes that exist in Judaism and color our expectations for what it means to be a Jewish man in today’s world. It examines Jewish sources that reveal the traditional life cycle of a man―from son to partner in marriage to father―and in doing so uncovers the ideals that define being a Jewish man. It also views Jewish men within the context of a sacred community and what that means for the sacred obligations of manhood.

Review:

"An insightful contemporary explication that speaks to the modern man."
Rabbi Charles Simon, executive director, Federation of Jewish Men's Club

"Combining biblical tales, Talmudic precepts, Jungian observations, cogent references from contemporary writers and his own personal stories and reflections ... it succeeds in fashioning a very accessible, and very valuable, guide for Jewish men grappling with key relationships in their life's journey."
Doug Barden, executive director, Men of Reform Judaism

"Opens up an important conversation on gender issues that both men and women need to address."
Rabbi Elyse Goldstein, rabbinic director, Kolel: Adult Center for Liberal Jewish Learning; editor, New Jewish Feminism: Probing the Past, Forging the Future

“Warm and accessible ... invites self-reflection, and maps a contemporary Jewish path for the journey from boy to man to mensch.”
Rabbi David A. Teutsch, author, Spiritual Community: The Power to Restore Hope, Commitment and Joy

“A thoughtful, engaging reflection on a central question of our time: what does it mean to be a mature, responsible Jewish man in the contemporary world? Provides helpful answers without being overly prescriptive. Like having a helpful friend in your corner.”
Sam Osherson, PhD, psychologist; author, Finding our Fathers

“Beautifully written ... a wonderful combination of scholarship and personal insight that will surely help draw Jewish men back to the center of Jewish life and striving.”
Rabbi Jeffrey K. Salkin, author, Searching for My Brothers: Jewish Men in a Gentile World; editor, A Dream of Zion: American Jews Reflect on Why Israel Matters to Them
