Most religions say the same thing. They proclaim, “Believe me!” The novelty of Judaism is that it insists, “Think me!” The individual can use rational thinking to make sense out of life. It is not just a question of belief.
Albert Einstein contrasted science and religion when he said, “Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.” Apparently, a person must have religion, but he needs one that is rational -- seemingly a contradiction in terms. This book, The Wisdom of the Jews, comes to resolve this dilemma for the thinking individual.
