The Spirit of Jewish Ethics

By Louis E. Newman

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, January 5, 1996

Liberal Judaism tends to interpret a text's moral message to stay in touch with the present while traditional Judaism consults the text at face value. The challenge moving forward will be to balance the two perspectives so that a full spiritual experience is encompassed in the present formation of ethics.
