Why Be Jewish

Thoughtful, piercing, and sincere, Why Be Jewish? is Edgar Bronfman's passionate testimonial to his own personal Jewish journey and the story of the Jewish people. This is the late Edgar Bronfman's clarion call to a generation of secular, disaffected and unaffiliated Jews, addressing the most critical question confronting Judaism worldwide. Completed in December 2013, just weeks before he passed away, Why Be Jewish? expresses Canadian billionaire and philanthropist Edgar Bronfman's awe, respect, and deep love for his faith and heritage. Bronfman walks readers through the major tenets and ideas in Jewish life, fleshing out their meaning and offering proof texts from the Jewish tradition, gleaned over his many years of study with some of the greatest teachers in the Jewish world. In Why Be Jewish?, with honest, poignancy, and passion, Bronfman shares insights learned from his own personal journey and makes a compelling case for the meaning and transcendence of a secular Judaism that is still steeped in deep moral values, authentic Jewish texts, and a focus on deed over creed or dogma. From the Hardcover edition.
