Product Description

    

When Judaism is introduced to a person as a religion of taboos, permanent damage is inflicted upon its very structure. Too often, young people have become victims of such negativity and consequently have not been able to find their way to the Jewish experience. One of the greatest tasks of Jewish educators today is to daringly turn the tide and show our people that Judaism is foremost the art of enjoying God’s world.


Thoughts to Ponder is a collection of short, and often unusual, observations about the complexities of human existence and religious meaning. Rabbi Cardozo masterfully weaves together the intriguing perspectives of renowned Western and religious thinkers spanning the ages as he deals with subjects that range from “Jewish Identity, Jewish Leadership and Rebellion” and “The Therapy of Sport” to “Religious Stringencies: Good or Bad?” The Ba’al Shem Tov, Rav Avraham Yitschak Kook, Emanuel Kant and Charles Darwin are just some of the legendary figures who appear in this eclectic work. Each “Thought” contains stimulating and eye-opening concepts that will plant seeds of curiosity in the minds of readers.

Rabbi Dr. Nathan Lopes Cardozo, Dean of the David Cardozo School for Jewish Studies and Human Dignity, lectures regularly at over fifty institutions of Jewish and secular learning around the world. He is often hosted by programs with affiliation ranging from the Orthodox Union and Union of Sephardic Communities to Oxford and Harvard Universities. Regarded by many as a type of ambassador of Jewish conscience, he has, over the past twenty-five years, attracted a large number of students with his unconventional style. His fresh approach to many topics of social concern and his unswerving honesty continue to engage Jews and non-Jews alike.
