Judaism

Western literature’s most important books have been translated, not once, but many times. The book at the top of the charts is the Bible: more than 100 translations, and that’s just in English.

I’m Jewish.  I feel a strong affinity for Judaism – the beauty of its rituals, teachings and music. But it can be hard to relate. 

Interview: Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb on nonviolence

May 13, 2015

For many liberal Jews, it can be hard to imagine a time when a woman's role was mostly in the home. But it wasn't so long ago, only men could become rabbis. The feminist movement began to change that and in 1981, Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb was one of the first women to be ordained. During her four decades leading congregations, she challenged old texts that don't make sense in a modern way. Today Gottlieb is pushing another agenda for Judaism--a path of nonviolence.
