      Oct. 22, - PRLog-- New Book Sheds Light On Reform Judaism and Jewish Enlightenment Author, Alexander Maller is pleased to announce the release of his new book, Reform Judaism for the Rest of Us: Faith Versus Political Activism. Reform Judaism has been tested by the spiritual torments and ideological upheavals of the last two centuries. Night is the first in a trilogy—Night, Dawn, Day—marking Wiesel's transition during and after the Holocaust from darkness to light, according to the Jewish tradition of beginning a new day at nightfall. "In Night," he said, "I wanted to show the end, the finality of the event. Everything came to an end—man, history, literature, religion, : Elie Wiesel.   U.S. Judaism Today, Striving To Stay Relevant Some ‘rays of light,’ but a leading Jewish historian warns of dangers of universalism. By Gary Rosenblatt Septem , pm 2 Edit. To clarify what Sarna's book is not: It is not an account of all aspects of American Jewish history. That would be well nigh impossible in only pages of text.

      In this provocative exploration, Rabbi Sidney Schwarz, founder and president of PANIM: The Institute for Jewish Leadership and Values, sheds light on the relationship between Judaism, social justice and the Jewish identity of American Jews.
