The story I tell in Evolution of An Unorthodox Rabbi is much the same as the one I've attempted to relate for years as a rabbi. It's about matters of significance which claim us — as Jews and as God's most intriguing and flawed creatures. The ideas of Jewish tradition take centre stage here, but also pressing for attention are politics, Israel, the "discontents of civilization" (paraphrasing Freud), the magic and majesty of evolution and more. Ultimately my book — not unlike my life — is a small meditation on how we change, knowingly or not, from one way of knowing the world to another.
For more about my story, and specifically about the evolution of the book, see "One Rabbi's Story of Change" in The Times of Israel, December 2015.
