On the Cument Renaissance in Jewish Spirituality

By Jody Myers

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2000

Spirituality connotes a highly individualized, uncharted, and not yet completed quest in which the individual's immediate feelings are of greater importance than the observance of Jewish lay and inherited norms. Today's Renaissance of spirituality is the flowering of an old shoot, planted in the soil of ancient Jewish texts and fertilized by the contemporary knowledge of revolution.
