Basing his 'discussion of
Judaism on Halacha — which
includes all Jewish law — an
important section in the book
is devoted to an understanding
of Halacha and the theories
about halachic law. Our re-
ligion, the author states, will
mean something and will be a
part of the personal selves of
those who live with Halacha.
God and the search for the
ultimate, modern conception of
man, freedom and sin and the
moral purposes of life are
among the important subjects
included in the discussions in
Rabbi Gewirtz's book. "The Au-
thentic Jew and His Judaism"
is a truly creative work and
is a valuable contribution to
efforts to assure an understand-
ing of traditional Jewish values.
