What your rabbi probably has never told you, but couldif youd only ask.
Every day I wonder if God is real, if the Torah is true. Every day I wonder why Im a Jew. But thats part of being Jewish. In the Torah, were called Yisraelthe ones who wrestle with God. Wrestling, asking, wondering, searching is just what God wants us to do! God loves good questions. Now tell me, what are your questions?
from Chapter 1
In Judaism were allowed to ask questions. We are invited to ask them. But for young people, it often feels as if no one is willing to take tough questions about religion, ourselves, and the world seriously.
This updated and expanded new edition of Tough Questions Jews Ask turns that all around. With honesty, humor and respect, Rabbi Edward Feinstein tackles topics as diverse as:
Why Does God Let Terrible Things Happen?
What Is God Anyway?
If I Pray for Something, Will I get It?
Whats the meaning of life? Is that a dumb question?
Why Does Religion Need So Many Rules?
Why Be Jewish?
With insight and wisdomand without pretending to have all the answersRabbi Feinstein encourages young people to make sense of the Jewish tradition by wrestling with what we dont understand.
