Rediscovering the Revolutionary Nature of Jewish Practice

By David Siff

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2005

The author discusses the power of Jewish tradition and study combined with social/political action and compassionate and moral practices. He urges that Torah calls us to be moral critics of a world we take for granted, and depend on, and even to question the way we lead our lives. Study and prayer must be revolutionary if it is to be true.
