In Judaism on Trial, Rabbi Nathan Lopes Cardozo brings clarity to timeless questions relating to the very purpose of our existence while openly confronting such contemporary concerns as the Reform, Conservative and Orthodox divide. Combining extensive education in world thought and philosophy with an intense study of Jewish sources, Rabbi Cardozo shares compelling insights into a rich tradition. Written in a conversational style, readers of Judaism on Trial will find a personal, passionate work of logic and intellectual depth. Rabbi Dr. Nathan Lopes Cardozo, Dean of the David Cardozo School for Jewish Studies and Human Dignity, lectures regularly at over fifty institutions of Jewish and secular learning around the world. He is often hosted by programs with affiliation ranging from the Orthodox Union and Union of Sephardic Communities to Oxford and Harvard Universities. Regarded by many as a type of ambassador of Jewish conscience, he has, over the past twenty-five years, attracted a large number of students with his unconventional style. His fresh approach to many topics of social concern and his unswerving honesty continue to engage Jews and non-Jews alike.
