Judaism: A Way of Being
Sep 16 2010

Join distinguished scholar and author David Gelernter as he seeks to answer the deceptively simple question: What is Judaism really about? Gelernter views Judaism as one of humanity's most profound and sublimely beautiful achievements. In his new book, Judaism: A Way of Being, he lays out Jewish beliefs on four basic topics - the sanctity of everyday life; man and God; the meaning of sexuality and family: good, evil and the nature of God's justice in a cruel world - and conveys a profound and stirring sense of what it means to be Jewish.

David Gelernter is professor of computer science at Yale University and contributing editor at the Weekly Standard. He is the author of several books, including Mirror Worlds, The Muse in the Machine, and the novel 1939.
