But others say about...Jewish Renewal

By Arthur Waskow

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, February 1997

Waskow responds to Jack Moline's critique of Renewal Judaism (in Sh'ma vol.27/no.525), stating that he is incorrect on all fronts. Waskow states that the deeply learned and deeply committed teachers of Jewish Renewal have accepted that their God-given task is to bring near to God, Torah and Israel many who have learned from past experiences to fear and flee them. And to do this not by going back to the same version of Judaism that turned these people away in the first place, but to go forward to the Judaism that our most holy explorers can see beckoning to us all.
