JUDAISM FOR UNIVERSALISTS by Rabbi Everett Gendler
A pioneer of Jewish environmentalism and spiritual renewal, a leader among rabbis who participated in the civil rights movement, a teacher of nonviolent resistance, and a highly creative religious leader, Rabbi Everett Gendler here offers more than a half-century of insight about the quest for shalom, wholeness, in a fractured world.
“Not only was Rabbi Gendler the pioneer, but he has grown wiser and stronger as the dangers to the environment have become mortal threats to survival. Bless him and his wonderful wife and all their works.”
—Albert Vorspan, Vice-President Emeritus of the movement for Reform Judaism
“His teaching of active non-violence has given vision and hopes to enormous numbers of people and transformed their lives. This compilation of his essays . . . is an inexhaustible source of compassion and wisdom.”
—Samdhong Rinpoche, Prime Minister of the Tibetan Government in Exile, 2001-2011
“Whether quoting from Biblical scholars or from William Blake and Lawrence Ferlinghetti, his wise comments on the significance of things agricultural were an especial joy for this farmer to read.”
—Elliot Coleman, The New Organic Grower
Rabbi Gendler has been ahead of the curve on every major issue facing the world, before any of us saw with any clarity things that were eminently clear to him. This is a book that will enrich the soul and delight the mind with its age-old fresh insights.”
—Sharon Strassfeld, The Jewish Catalogue
