Jonathan Sacks Books, Jonathan Sacks poetry book The Politics of Hope Authors: Jonathan Sacks
Publisher: Vintage Books
Published Date: 2001-01-23
Categories: Civil society
The argument of this book can be stated simply. Ther are two concepts of a free society, one liberal, the other libertarian. For the past fifty years the libertarian view has prevailed. Shared by politicians of the left and right, it maintains that a free society is ideally one in which individuals are free to pursue their own choices, both political and moral. The view has been tried and failed and has given rise to a social disorder more bleak than any within living memory. In 'The Politics of Hope' Jonathon Sacks proposes a new politics of responsibility in which families, neighborhoods, communities, voluntary organisations and religious groups have all part to play, a politics not of interest, but of involvement. How, he asks, as a society, do we move from the politics of despair to the politics of hope?

Jonathan Sacks Books, Jonathan Sacks poetry book Judaism's Life-Changing Ideas: a Weekly Reading of the Jewish Bible Authors: Jonathan Sacks
Publisher: Maggid
Published Date: 2020-08
Categories: Religion
What is Judaism? A religion? A faith? A way of life? A set of beliefs? A collection of commands? A culture? A civilization? It is all these, but it is emphatically something more. It is a way of thinking about life, a constellation of ideas. One might think that the ideas Judaism introduced into the world have become part of the common intellectual heritage of humankind, at least of the West. Yet this is not the case. Some of them have been lost over time; others the West never fully understood. Yet these ideas remain as important as ever before, and perhaps even more so. In this inspiring work, Rabbi Sacks introduces his readers to one Life-Changing Idea from each of the weekly parashot.

Jonathan Sacks Books, Jonathan Sacks poetry book Radical Then, Radical Now Authors: Jonathan Sacks
Publisher: Bloomsbury Academic
Published Date: 2004-01-29
Categories: Religion
The Jewish People in its very being constitutes a living protest against a world of hatred, violence and war. Radical Then, Radical Now is a popwerful testimony to the amazing resilience of the Jeqwish people who have, through their endurance of four thousand years of persecution and exile, earned a unique place in history. Without land or power, they created an identity for themaselves throguh their shared dreams of freedom, justice, dignity and human rights. Yet far more than Jewish history is contained withoin the pages of this book. Jonathan Sacks reminds us all of the l;egacy of those dreams and of our responsibility to our fellow man. he challenegs us to build a better woprld. 'Of all the questions of life, the two most penetrating are ' Who Am ? Who Are We? Rabbi Sacks answers beautifully. On matters of faith he is one of my favourite writers' --Michael Novak, Scholar at The American Enterprise Institute

Jonathan Sacks Books, Jonathan Sacks poetry book Future Tense Authors: Jonathan Sacks
Publisher: Hachette UK
Published Date: 2011-10-27
Categories: Religion
Historically, Jews have thought of themselves in terms of the biblical phrase, 'The people that dwells alone.' In the current global environment, this is dangerous. It leads to the isolation of Jews, Judaism and Israel. Too much contemporary Jewish writing is self-referential: Jews talking to Jews, preaching to the converted. Yet Jews cannot cure anti-Semitism alone. We need to persuade Jews and non-Jews alike that Jews, Judaism and Israel have something unique to contribute to the future. FUTURE TENSE does this. It moves beyond the 'they hate us' school of Jewish thought to provide an overarching vision for the future of Judaism, Jewish life and Israel for the twenty-first century.

Jonathan Sacks Books, Jonathan Sacks poetry book The Great Partnership Authors: Jonathan Sacks
Publisher:
Published Date: 2011
Categories: Religion and science
Writing with his usual grace and fluency, Jonathan Sacks moves beyond the tired arguments of militant atheists such as Dawkins and Hitchens, to explore how religion has always played a valuable part in human culture and far from being dismissed as redundant, must be allowed to temper and develop scientific understanding in order for us to be fully human. Ranging around the world to draw comparisons from different cultures, and delving deep into the history of language and of western civilisation, Jonathan Sacks shows how the predominance of science-oriented thinking is embedded deeply even in our religious understanding, and calls on us to recognise the centrality of relationship to true religion, and thus to see how this core value of relationship is essential if we are to avoid the natural tendency for science to rule our lives rather than fulfilling its promise to set us free.

"The Jewish people, having survived for thousands of years in the most adverse circumstances, including the Holocaust, is today threatened by intermarriage and assimilation. Jewish communities throughout the diaspora are experiencing demographic decline. Why has this happened, and can anything be done to reverse the trend?" "In his first book since becoming Chief Rabbi, Dr. Jonathan Sacks issues an inspiring summons to collective action to counteract the prevailing trend and hand on the age-old faith and traditions to a new generation." "Will We Have Jewish Grandchildren? is a powerful study of Jewish continuity: why it matters, how it was achieved in the past, and how it can be created in the future. It suggests an answer to the question that will increasingly dominate the agenda of contemporary Jewry."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

When did Rosh HaShana, the anniversary of creation, become a day of judgement? How does Yom Kippur unite the priest's atonement with the prophet's repentance? What makes Kohelet, read on Sukkot, the most joyful book in the Bible? Why is the remembrance of the Pesah story so central to Jewish morality? And which does Shavuot really celebrate the law or the land? Bringing together Rabbi Sacks's acclaimed introductions to the Koren Sacks Mahzorim, Ceremony & Celebration reveals the stunning interplay of biblical laws, rabbinic edicts, liturgical themes, communal rituals and profound religious meaning of each of the five central Jewish holidays.

Categories: Religion
Chief Rabbi Emeritus Lord Jonathan Sacks evaluates of the role of the synagogue in Jewish life today. In it he explores the choices faced by religious leadership in the modern world, and the ways in which the synagogue embodies a living community of faith. His book Faith in the Future, described by The Times as 'one of the most significant declarations made by a religious leader in this country for many years', analysed the importance of community, morality and faith in the future of Western societies. Community of Faith applies these themes to the Jewish situation, and suggests ways in which the synagogue can be renewed as a centre of meaning and belonging.

Jonathan Sacks Books, Jonathan Sacks poetry book Crisis and Covenant Authors: Jonathan Sacks
Publisher: Manchester University Press
Published Date: 1992
Categories: Covenants
Discusses various issues in contemporary Jewish theology. Ch. 2 (p. 25-53), "The Valley of the Shadow", is dedicated to the theological interpretation of the Holocaust. The Holocaust poses several problems to Jewish thought: Is God present in the post-Auschwitz world? Did the Holocaust renew the Covenant or did it survive intact? May the Holocaust be interpreted in terms of punishment, or is its meaning different, maybe inexplicable, in the extant categories of human ethics? May the Holocaust be regarded as a necessary transitional point on the way to the Jewish state? What lessons may be extracted from the Holocaust? Presents various solutions of modern-day Jewish theologians. Argues that the only lesson of the Holocaust is the reality of a common Jewish fate.

Villanelle Of Sunset

Come hither, Child! and rest:
This is the end of day,
Behold the weary West!

Sleep rounds with equal zest
Man's toil and children's play;
Come hither, Child! and rest.
