Edgar Bronfman's clarion call to a generation of secular, disaffected, and unaffiliated Jews, Why Be Jewish? addresses the most critical question confronting Judaism worldwide.

Completed in December 2013, just weeks before he passed away, Why Be Jewish? expresses Edgar Bronfman's awe, respect, and deep love for his faith and heritage. Bronfman walks listeners through the major tenets and ideas in Jewish life, fleshing out their meanings and offering proof texts from the Jewish tradition gleaned over his many years of study with some of the greatest teachers in the Jewish world.

In Why Be Jewish?, with honesty, poignancy, and passion, Bronfman shares insights gleaned from his own personal journey and makes a compelling case for the meaning and transcendence of a secular Judaism that is still steeped in deep moral values, authentic Jewish texts, and a focus on deed over creed or dogma.

Excellent Description of Modern Judaism

The author explains why Judaism survived as long as it did, and why it is important to maintain a Jewish identity. The essence of this writing is that all of us need to realize that "God" is the ideal that we must strive to be like, and "Godliness" is our mission on Earth. Jewish writings, Biblical or Modern, tell us that compassion and serving others, striving to leave the world a better place for others, is the true message of being a Jew.
