Sherwin T. Wine's new book
will undoubtedly be the cause of
much debate between tradi-
tional Jews and Jews who seek
to pursue their identity through
non-traditional (non-religious,
secular?) means.
Whatever one's approach to
Judaism Beyond God subtitled a
Radical New Way to Be Jewish,
it will be a learning experience,
whether one agrees with the
contents or not.
Rabbi Wine, founder of
Humanistic Judaism and the
first humanist Jewish congrega-
tion, the Birmingham Temple,
confronts issues and events
faced daily by contemporary
Jews: Jewish identity, Jewish

H.P.

history, anti-Semitism, the holi-
days, rites of passage, Israel, in-

termarriage and conversion.
He takes a hard-hitting
straight-from-the-hip approach,
stating his case without
apologies. To support his theses,
the well-read Wine alludes to
Biblical and historical per-
sonalities.
For the uninitiated — to
Humanistic Judaism — the book
can serve as an educational tool,
or for those who have been in-
troduced to the philosophy, it
serves as an update.

One passage that gives a clue
to the humanist Jew's thought
system comes from the section
entitled, "The Bible and
Humanistic Judaism":
"The Torah is a book of
shared conclusions. The priestly
writers often reached ethical
conclusions that humanistic
Jews have also reached. The
priests came to these moral pre-
cepts with the reasoning of an
authoritarian God. Humanistic
Jews come to these rules with a
commonsensical testing of their
consequences. Rabbinic Jews
come to these commandments
with the knowledge that the
Torah gives them validity.
Humanistic Jews approach them
with the awareness that human
experience makes them worth-

2 Israelis Hurt
In Hijacking

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Two Israeli
women were in a Malta hospital
this week undergoing treatment
for wounds inflicted by the hijac-
kers of Egyptair Flight 648. Nit-
zan Mendelson, 23, of Kibbutz
Hulata in Galilee was shot in the
head and her condition was re-
ported critical Monday.
Her companion, Tamar Artzi,
24, of Kibbutz Revivim in the
Negev, was reported in stable
condition with a stomach wound.
Their families flew to Valetta, the
Maltese capital Monday. They
were accompanied by an Israeli
surgeon, Dr. Mordechai Shalit of
Hadassah Hospital.
The Egyptian airliner was
seized by hijackers shortly after it
left Athens Saturday night for
Cairo and was forced to land at
Valetta where the hijackers de-
manded fuel and food. Of the 80
passngers and crew of 14
nationalities, 60 died, either shot
by the hijackers or killed when
Egyptian commandos stormed the
aircraft at Valetta airport Sun-
day.

while (even if the Torah never
existed). Millions of people in
dozens of cultures have dis-
covered that honoring parents
and telling the truth are mor-
ally important, even though
they have never seen a Torah.
Ethics do not come from a book.
They come from human needs
and human experience."
The book is published by the
Soviety for Humanistic Judaism
and was unveiled at the recently
concluded Jewish Book Fair.
Of course, there will be the
nay-sayers and opponents, but
persons who wish to learn about
another Jewish alternative will
be enlightened.
