Prof. Norman B. Mirsky's
"Unorthodox Judaism"
(Ohio State University
Press) is a collection of es-

and beliefs.
The essays include

emnize," "Ill Wind or High
Tide?," "A Rabbi Named
Sally" and "The Vision of
Man Triumphant."
"Evolution and the Stork"
traces the beginnings of the
Reform movement to the in-

synagogues early in the

Scroll of the Law" during
the service, and knocking
"during the reading of the
Book of Esther on the feast
of Purim."
The emphasis on de-
corum in Reform
synagogues, Prof. Mirsky
explains as follows: "All
