(p.125) Conclusion
Jewish Theology for a Postmodern Age

Miriam Feldmann Kaye

Liverpool University Press

This chapter explores how Tamar Ross and Rav Shagar advocate restoring theology according to the linguistic cultural turn and the postmodern critique. It shows tentative responses to postmodernism that bring creative and liberating insights into the wellspring of Jewish thought. It also looks at attempts at weathering the storm of challenges set by deconstructionism, relativism, and cultural particularism. The chapter examines the involvement of major theological reconfigurations that are designed to reshape traditional concepts in order to make them thrive alongside the postmodern critique. It reviews how Ross and Shagar outline a new methodology for the construction of a compelling Jewish theology in a postmodern age.

Keywords:   Tamar Ross, Rav Shagar, postmodernism, Jewish thought, deconstructionism, relativism, cultural particularism, Jewish theology
