Synopsis: A rabbi traces the history of the Reform movement from a personal perspective, chronicling his grandfather's settling in Winnepeg, his father's move to New York, and his own appreciation of the values of Reform Judaism

From Publishers Weekly: Although Syme offers a concluding chapter on his reasons for choosing Reform Judaism over other branches and gives colorful background on the history of Reform, his earnest, plodding autobiography is essentially a fleshed-out curriculum vitae taking the reader through his boyhood, bar mitzvah, summer camp, trips to Israel, campus ferment, rabbinical training and professional career. Vice-president of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations (UAHC), he writes about his family's roots in Winnipeg and the molding influence of his father, product of an Orthodox home, who nevertheless became a Reform rabbi in New York and Detroit. Syme's bout with cancer while in college crystallized his decision to become a rabbi. He believes Reform represents the best chance for Judaism to thrive in a pluralistic society. We also learn about UAHC's educational reforms, youth program and Outreach drive targeted at persons with no religious preference.

Book Description Donald I Fine, E Rutherford, New Jersey, U.S.A., 1990. Hard Back. Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 221 Pages. Introduction by Albert Vorspan Senior Vice-President, Union of American Hebrew Congregation. Dust jacket price $18.95 is unclipped. Unread book. What today is known as Reform Judaism did not come into beign as a sudden revolution in Jewish life, but rather as a gradual manifestation of the determination of Jews to enter the modern era. Rabbi Syme traces the history of the Reform movement from a uniique perspective, telling how generations of his own family have been intimately connected with the movement's flowering in the united States and Canada. Beginning with his own ordinatiion, Rabbi Syme then looks back at his grandfather Max the blacksmith, a deeply religious, highly observant man who settled Winnipeg to escape the pogroms in his native Russia, where he raided five children. For all lJews --- observant and non-observant alike --- this book serves as a reminder of the roots of their heritage, an evocation of Reform Judaism's values --- openness to change and responsiveness to human needs. Personal, instructive and optimistic, this is a unique book for every Jewish home. Size: 6" x 9". Seller Inventory # 9233
