Lights in the Forest: Rabbis Respond to Twelve Essential Jewish Questions
Edited by Rabbi Paul Citrin
A cross-section of rabbis respond to questions under one of three categories: (1) On God, (2) On Our Humanity, (3) On the Jewish People.
Their responses include thoughtful, personal essays about God, ethics, humanity, suffering, evil, the soul, after-life, interfaith dialogue, and more. The intention of the contributors of this volume is to expand the knowledge and understanding of the readers in Jewish life, practice, and identity. They strive to encourage further study and ongoing questioning. Judaism’s intellectual and spiritual tools are presented as a means for leading a life of purpose and commitment.
