Autonomy, Community, and Covenant: Liberal Judaism Confronts the Twenty-First Century

By Arnold Eisen

KTAV Publishing House, Inc., 1998

The author's stated purpose is to probe liberal Judaism's turn in the direction of traditional authority through a careful reading of Eugene Borowitz's Theology for the Post-Modern Jew, given that in Eisen's opinion, "no American Jewish thinker has better articulated the tension between autonomy and commandment." Furthermore, the paper also explores what this shift might mean for American Judaism more generally.
