The Voice of the Shaking Mountain £4.99
The Voice of the Shaking Mountain

According to Jewish tradition, all generations of Jews stood at the foot of Mount Sinai to hear God speaking. We recall that moment at the festival of Shavu'ot. But what if you couldn't hear? The Voice of the Shaking Mountaintells the story of what it was like to be a young hearing-impaired girl standing at Sinai.  Through her explanation of how it is possible to hear the voice of God in many differnt ways, we might also learn to appreciate that there is a differencebetween hearing and really listening.

This is Not the Way:Jews, Judaism and the State of Israel £12.00
This is Not the Way:Jews, Judaism and the State of Israel

Few subjects invoke such passion as the history and current situation of Jews in Western societies. David Goldberg, a progressive Rabbi with many years' experience of dealing with other faiths and other Jews, takes the most difficult issues of this fraught relationship and confronts them head on. He argues that it is wrong to equate anti-Semitism with anti-Zionism, that it is far more difficult to be a Muslim in twenty-first century Britain than it is to be a Jew, that Israel is far too often treated sentimentally and that the identification of Israel with the Holocaust - memorializing the latter and sacralising the former - has had baneful effects. His discussion of the perennial question, 'who is a Jew?', is equally trenchant: he rejects all strict rabbinic criteria, proposing that a Jew is simply anyone who insists that he or she is one.
