Pluralism Limited: Book Review of "Dignity of Difference" by Jonathan Sacks

By Neil Amswych

Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association (RRA), Spring 2003

Dignity of Difference, by United Kingdom Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, attempts to argue, from Jewish texts, that religious adherents and Jews specifically, must embrace difference as a theological and social necessity. Amswych asserts that Sacks's work lacks the academic and intellectual integrity to effectively argue that position to the only audience that, according to Amswych, has not yet embraced that position - traditional Orthodox Jews.
