Leaves from a Religious Notebook

By Jonathan Chipman

Eugene Borowitz, September 29, 1978

The author outlines his vision of a new path for religious Judaism, which would be grounded in Orthodoxy, but moves into previously unknown realms. This new path would be post-Zionist, affirming both Israel and the Diaspora; it would encourage simplicity rather than esoteric subtlety; it would see Halakha as being culturally determined; and it would seek to embrace both sides of various religious dialectics or spectra.
