Must a Jew Believe Anything?

Menachem Kellner


The crucial question for today's Jewish world is not whether Jews will have Jewish grandchildren, but how many different sorts of mutually exclusive Judaisms those grandchildren will face. This book argues that the Orthodox practice of framing the debate with non-Orthodox movements in terms of dogmatic fidelity contrasted with heresy is not the traditional Jewish approach, and that the debate could well be framed in other ways, ways that would allow all Jews to work together towards a less polarized Jewish future.

Keywords: Jews, Judaism, Orthodox Judaism, traditional Judaism, non-Orthodox movements
