Rabbi Eugene B. Borowitz, a leading theologian of Reform Judaism who argued that the modern emphasis on reason and self-imposed ethics needed the undergirding of what he called a covenantal relationship with God, died on Jan. 22 at his home in Stamford, Conn. He was 91. His daughter Nan Langowitz said the cause was congestive heart failure. When Rabbi Borowitz began publishing his groundbreaking philosophical works in the 1960s, liberal and humanistic Jewish thinkers who had stressed the pre-eminence of reason as the basis for human values were in something of a postwar crisis.

by Eugene B. Borowitz (Author). This book provided an in depth and comprehensive opinion of Judaism as the Liberal and Reformed sanctions developed nationally and world wide. Borowitz is the much honored "dean" of American Jewish philosophers. For his contributions to Reform Judaism, the Union for Reform Judaism awarded him its Eisendrath Prize at its 2005 biennial convention.
He rejected the notion of "progressive revelation" in the meaning of comparing human betterment with divine inspiration, stressing that past experiences were "unique" and of everlasting importance .
