    Sally Berkovic

    New Edition Available, see below

    Speaking to her daughters as they will be in ten years or so, Sally Berkovic writes that "the moment that Avigayil, my first born, was delivered, I had a profound religious experience. I realized that feminist theologians who claim God is a woman are fundamentally mistaken only a man would let this sort of thing happen.
    I understood what Bertha Papenheim meant when she said, 'If there is to be justice in the world to come, women will be lawgivers and men will have to have babies.'" With wit and humor, warmth and a certain down-to-earth sensibility, Sally Berkovic lives out in her own life as an observant Modern Orthodox woman the contradictions between the opportunities of modern life and the constrictions of Orthodox practice.
    Her book is not an ideological tract, however, but a warm, personal account of her Orthodox upbringing, and the hope she has for herself and her daughters. And speaking to them, she admits that "sometimes I feel like this life your father and I have created for you is disconnected from our own childhood experiences and caught in a timewarp as Orthodoxy fails to address the changing roles of its daughters because of that, it would be much easier to say Orthodoxy doesn't 'speak' to me, but I feel that I have the responsibility to 'speak' to Orthodoxy." This book is the result. The daughter of Holocaust survivors, Sally Berkovic grew up in Melbourne, Australia, and has lived in Jersualem and New York. She is currently based in London, with her husband, who is an Orthodox rabbi, and two daughters. A journalist and social worker, she has been published in many newspapers and magazines.

  • Fossils and Faith

    Nathan Aviezer

    The subject of science and the Bible has recently experienced a surge of popularity. The proliferation of knowledge within the last few decades has led many people to ask: Are there any implications of these recent scientific findings for the person who believes in God?
    Fossils and Faith demonstrates the profound implications of modern science for religious belief. Professor Nathan Aviezer emphasizes that faith in God and accepting the truth of the Bible do not require the abandonment of rational thinking. Quite the contrary. Aviezer shows that scientific findings have become important tools for understanding many Biblical passages and for deepening one's faith.
    Fossils and Faith deals with the very essence of religion - faith, prayer, miracles, free will, the creation of mankind, genetic engineering, life on other planets, chaos, the interaction between God and the world - showing how recent advances in science touch on each of these subjects in important ways.
    The complexity and subtlety of the physical universe, revealed within the last few decades, provide the framework for understanding the modes of interaction between God and His world. The reader will discover how modern science imparts new insights and deeper meaning into the eternal words of the Torah.

    Joseph B. Soloveitchik

    Menachem D. Genack

    Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik was a towering twentieth-century intellectual and rabbinic figure. Scion of several generations of world-famous talmudic luminaries, he was the acknowledged leader of Modern Orthodoxy and religious Zionism, giving intellectual and religious integrity to these important movements. Rabbi Soloveitchik's position in the Jewish community is best epitomized by the fact that he was usually referred to simply as "the Rav", a rabbi's rabbi. A traditional rosh yeshiva, he headed the rabbinic program at Yeshiva University's Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary. A brilliant talmudic authority, the Rav also held a doctorate in philosophy
    from the University of Berlin. He tried to create a symbiosis between the Torah and contemporary thought, blazing new trails in the understanding of Torah and in the application of that understanding to the modern world.

    In this memorial volume, some of the Rav's closest students express an appreciation of his teachings and his impact on them and their contemporaries.
