The New Spirituality: Is it Selfish? A CLAL Roundtable

By Andrew Silow-Carroll, Tsvi Blanchard, David Nelson, Daniel S. Brenner

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, 2001

Four Jewish leaders respond to critiques of" the new spirituality," including Rabbi Arthur Hertzberg's characterization of popular interest in Kabbalah and the teachings of the Dalai Lama as a "fad" that is "self-centered," and political scientist Charles Liebman's description of spirituality as a "privatized religion....Its emphases are interpersonal rather than collective." They discuss spirituality and the conflicts, if any, between personal spiritual fulfillment and the collective Jewish experience.
