Judaism for Everyone ... without Dogma presents an exceptional and stimulating
view of Judaism. The author argues for a Judaism oriented by humanistic values and personal freedom. Individuals
that value their capacity to decide what is right and wrong cannot accept ready-made formulas. For them, the question
is not what Judaiism is but rather how to find their own way to be a Jew. Tradition and collective memory are raw materials
that each generation must reinterpret and in which new meanings are found. Judaism for Everyone ... without Dogma is an effort to contribute to the advancement of Judaism that is based on freedom not on fear or blind acceptance
