About the Book

Can one reconcile a scientific, intellectual, cultural world view with a commitment to a religious way of life? Jeremy Rosen believes you can and should combine them. His goal is to educate, to present different perspectives and arguments, in the hope that his readers will be encouraged to think for themselves and choose a way of life that suits their personalities, their histories and their priorities. No two people are identical, either mentally or physically, so that choice is essential to fulfil one’s aspirations and maintain one’s integrity. This is my fourth collection of blogs and essays covering 2019 through 2021. It deals with Jewish religious and political issues, Bible, festivals, culture and ideas, and anti-Judaism. These pieces are designed to instruct and entertain without being too heavy or technical. And I am always delighted to get feedback.
