A Modern Orthodox Life by Rabbi Emanuel Rackman brings together some 75 sermons, columns, and articles by one of modern Orthodoxy’s most distinguished figures. Some of the writings in this volume go back many years, but the thoughts they express are as pertinent today as they were when first set down. They cover a broad range of topics that will be of interest to thoughtful readers of every Jewish background, and grapple with questions and issues that still demand reflection and seek resolution. All in all, this volume is a moving and profoundly human distillation of the wisdom of a lifetime spent in the rabbinate.
Rabbi Emanuel Rackman is chancellor emeritus of Bar-Ilan University in Ramat Gan, Israel, and previously served for many decades first as its president and then as its chancellor. Before taking up his responsibilities at Bar-Ilan he was provost of Yeshiva University in New York City, where he taught political science and jurisprudence. During his long and fruitful career he has also served as spiritual leader of the Fifth Avenue Synagogue in New York City, as president of the New York Board of Rabbis and of the Rabbinical Council of America, and as chairman of the Commission on Jewish Chaplaincy in the U.S. Armed Forces.
