The Mission of the Jews

posted by David Klinghoffer

Don’t miss my essay over at First Things on the mission of the Jews to the world. This, I think, the key idea that the Jewish community needs to absorb at this very unusual cultural moment, for the time is […]

The Rape of Dinah — and the Jewish Evangelizing Mission

posted by David Klinghoffer

I’m preoccupied by the old wives’ tale that Judaism has no missionary or conversionary genes in its spiritual DNA. This is one of those untruths that gets repeated so often, it’s taken for granted even by many thoughtful Jews. Maimonides, […]

Jews at the White House — What Are “Jewish Concerns”? Just Israel?

posted by David Klinghoffer

Yesterday, 16 top American Jewish leaders, representing 14 major Jewish organizations, met with Barack Obama in the White House. They had the ear of the president of the United States. From news reports, it seems they chose to talk about […]

What Jewish Mission?

posted by David Klinghoffer

A remarkable opinion piece by Joel Alperson and carried by JTA includes this observation: I’ve collected the mission statements of the largest 17 Jewish federations in North America, and not one mentions “God,” “Torah” or “Judaism.” Nor do the mission […]

Orthodox Jews Desperately Need to Learn How to Communicate for Public Consumption

posted by David Klinghoffer

That’s the simple lesson from the Rabbi Manis Friedman affair, which, if you haven’t looked into it, you’re probably better off. What on earth was he thinking? It will blow over quickly, but what a bad day for Chabad. And […]

A Gentile Torah-Believer’s Testimony

posted by David Klinghoffer

Recently a particularly thoughtful commenter on this blog mentioned in passing that he identifies as a Noachide, that is, a Gentile believer in Torah. I was so interested to hear this that I wrote to him and asked for his […]

Arguing with Jesus

posted by David Klinghoffer

Jay Michaelson has an interesting column in the Forward about the flood of recent books by Jews seeking to argue with Jesus and Christianity: [T]hese past few years have seen a small mountain of Jesus books arrive on my desk, […]

You Still Think Judaism Has No Mission of “Conversion”?

posted by David Klinghoffer

So you still think Judaism doesn’t seek to influence the spiritual path that non-Jews are on? That Jews have no plan of “conversion” in mind for the rest of the world? That Judaism has no “mission” to humanity? This week’s […]

At the Sea of Reeds, a Jewish Mission

posted by David Klinghoffer

Tomorrow, according to Biblical tradition, is the anniversary of the splitting of the Red Sea in 1313 BCE, when Pharaoh’s army pursuing the escaped Israelite slaves was hurled into the sea by God and drowned. Jews read the relevant passages […]

Was Hitler Jewish? & Other Thoughts on Judaism’s Universal Mission

posted by David Klinghoffer

Is Judaism a race or a mission? Last week when I began writing this blog, my Beliefnet editor advised me about some recent trends in Jewish-related web searches. After all, we’re trying to keep things relevant here.  It turns out that […]

Newsweek’s Favorite Rabbis

posted by David Klinghoffer

Newsweek published its list of the 50 most influential rabbis, and the usually entertainingly acerbic Failed Messiah comments blandly, “Star power trumps community influence.” There’s much more that we can say than that.  This list, which will be the talk of […]

Don’t Look There: Introducing this Blog

posted by David Klinghoffer

There was a line of ants running up and down the face of the aboveground crypts of the huge necropolis, a city of the dead with story upon story of stacked crypts rising over the 405 freeway south of Los […]

Animal Wisdom: The Voice of the Serpent
Our family watched Jaws together the other evening -- which, in case you're wondering, I regard as responsible parenting since our kids are basically too young to be genuinely scared by the film. The whole rest of the next day, two-year-old Saul was chattering about the "shark teeth." "Shark teeth g

Reading Wesley Smith: Why the Darwin Debate Matters
If the intelligent-design side in the evolution debate doesn't receive the support you might expect from people who should be allies, that may be because they haven't grasped why the whole thing matters so urgently. I got an email recently from a journalist whom I'd queried on the subject. "All told

The Mission of the Jews
Don't miss my essay over at First Things on the mission of the Jews to the world. This, I think, the key idea that the Jewish community needs to absorb at this very unusual cultural moment, for the time is so, so right. Non-Jews are waiting for us to fulfill the roll God gave us in the Torah. Please

Darwin at the Mountains of Madness: Evolution & the Occult
Of all the regrettable cultural forces that Darwinism helped unleash, perhaps the most surprising and seemingly unlikely is its role in sparking the creation of modern occultism. Charles Darwin himself could not have been less interested in the topic. But no attempt to assess the scope of his legacy
