Read ´ Judaism As a Civilization Toward a Reconstruction of American Jewish Life ↠ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB In Israel by Emma Felsenthal New York 1924 p 212 It was a fatal mistake of the period of emancipation a mistake which is the real source of all the subseuent disasters in modern Jewish life that in order to facilitate the fight for political euality Judaism was put forward not as a culture as the full expression of the inner life of the Jewish people but as a creed as the summary of a few abstract articles of faith similar in character to the religion of the surrounding nations Israel Friedlaender in Past and Present Ark Pub Co Cincinnati 1919 p 267 Is the trend toward placing less emphasis on Judaism as a cult and emphasis on Judaism as a civilization ie identifying it with all the activities and relations of life From a uestionnaire submitted in 1925 to members. My rating is based on what Kaplan says rather than how he says it Knowing next to nothing about Reconstructionist Judaism when I started this book I was blown away when I discovered that Kaplan argues the very notions that I have concluded for myself whether about the universalism of Reform Judaism or that Judaism can means a connection not necessarily religious to Jewish civilization Like all arguments this book is filled with examples and points that are often repetitious and redundant such that it becomes tedious reading at times though it s neither difficult or inaccessible but does expect a certain familiarity with Jewish history and theology After reading this book I now consider myself sympathetic to Reconstructionism if not a Reconstructionist at heart My limited observation of Reconstructionist Judaism however shows me that they are concerned with the inclusiveness espoused by Kaplan rather than Jewish civilization past and present as a whole being concerned with the individual trees rather than the forest so to speak so I would be hesitant to align myself fully with them Still I am excited to find such a complete and well thought articulation of the ideas that I have been developing for myself over the past several years ideas that rest on identity and history and community rather than piety
