On the one hand, it is obvious that man is very much a part of the material world in which he finds himself. But what makes Reconstructionist Judaism unique is the belief that Judaism is both a religion and a civilisation. In the future, the whole world will change, and all the people of the world will serve the one God. Today, many Reform congregations have returned to Hebrew prayers and encourage some degree of legal observance. Those readings that focus on the first use of clothes engender an air of superiority in the reader.

Targums are less literal and more paraphrased, helping the reader understand the meaning behind the translation, from a rabbinical perspective. G-d created the Hinderer to give us work to do in this world (see my article Why did G-d Create the World? ). Not to the angels or to the stars or the planets or anything else, for they are all created things in nature and in their functioning, there is no choice or judgment except by God Himself. The people who look to Abraham as the first patriarch are know by the term "Hebrews," the plural of "ivri."

The Psalmist accurately catches the sense, which the Jew knows through long acquaintance, of the joy and inner liberation of the mitzvah: And I shall keep Your law continually, which I have loved (Ps. 119.44-7). Neither couple fits the rhetoric of a male-dominated culture. One practical effect is that it encourages couples to resume intercourse when a man’s semen count is high and a woman is ovulating — thereby maximizing the chance of conception.

Above all, God has given man his mind, his reason, and understanding, with which to discover and use the world in which he lives. The Bible, Hebrew and New Testament, both in their different ways chronicle the godhead of the female and its overthrow. Moral exhortations call for solidarity with the poor and the helpless, for brotherly assistance to fellows in need. Returning exiles were leaders in the revival of the Palestinian center (now confined to the area of the former southern kingdom of Judah) and the building of the Second Temple.

It took the confidence born of the women's movement for me and other Jewish feminists to embrace our Jewishness, but in a new way. In 1972, a task force on equality, arguing that such language misleads worshipers about the true nature of both human beings and God, recommended altering masculine references in prayer.

Seventy-six percent of students at one of the most prominent yeshivas in the country, in Lakewood, New Jersey, are receiving Pell grants. Atonement is deemed only meaningful if accompanied by sincere decision to cease unacceptable actions, and then only if appropriate amends to others are honestly undertaken.
