About the author (1984)

Eugene Borowitz is considered the most original and influential Reform Jewish thinker today. A Reform rabbi and professor at Columbia University and the Hebrew Union College in New York, he is the founder and editor of Sh'ma: A Journal of Jewish Responsibility, a publication that promotes open discussion of controversial topics from all Judaic perspectives. Borowitz rejects the notion that Judaism is based on a heteronomous tradition or Jewish law; instead, he stresses the importance of autonomous choice and personal faith. Borowitz claims that a covenantal relationship with God forms the core of Reform Jewish theology and ethics.
