Judaism Disrupted: A Spiritual Manifesto for the 21st Century (Paperback)
"I can't remember the last time I felt pulled to underline a book constantly as I was reading it, but Judaism Disrupted is exactly that intellectual, spiritual and personal adventure. You will find yourself nodding, wrestling, and hoping to hold on to so many of its ideas and challenges. Rabbi Strassfeld reframes a Torah that demands breakage, reimagination, and ownership. Not only did I learn so much from Strassfeld's 11 principles; I was changed by them."
-Abigail Pogrebin, author, My Jewish Year; 18 Holidays, One Wondering Jew
How do you hold on to faith in a modern world? Rabbi Michael Strassfeld digs deep into the Jewish tradition to help us get to the root of the matter: our need to create connection - to our past, to our present, to each other. To connect with the unity underlying the universe that draws us all together.
Judaism Disrupted is about the future of Judaism-starting now. Do the time-honored traditions of rabbinic Judaism meet our spiritual needs? Do we feel spiritually sated after a Shabbat service? Is there another way to be a Jew? It's time for a new Judaism.
Strassfeld outlines a path that leads to a new Judaism-a new framework with practices that you can start putting into use right away to live a life of meaning. Judaism Disrupted is Judaism revitalized.
