about

This is a thoughtful introduction to Jewish moral theology and applied social ethics. It summarizes what normative Judaism says about what it means to love God, how we go about doing so, and how this affects our lives and our world. For Jews, loving God is morally constructed and outwardly focused, grounded in a covenant that outlines obligations to God, to each other and to the world. Drawing on biblical and rabbinic sources and the writings of both sages and contemporary scholars, this book offers a d?rash, or commentary, on the famous words of Rabbi Shimon the Just in Pirke Avot that ?upon these three things the world stands.?
