Summary "Why be Jewish? What does Judaism mean? What is its message? What does it do for us? These questions we ask ourselves are driven and answered by chutzpah, the revolutionary conception of the human condition and our relationship to God in the Jewish tradition. Throughout the history of the Jewish People, chutzpah--a rare quality of moral courage--has insisted on the significance of human life, the possibilities of human goodness and the depth of human responsibility as partners with God in caring for our world"--Dust jacket flap.
Subject Jewish way of life.
Added Author Geller, Laura, writer of foreword.
