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.

Rabbi Borowitz has the special talent of knowing how to explain in simple words very complicated philosophical concepts of Judaism

Presents the history and theology of the Jewish Reform movement. Rabbi Borowitz has the special talent of knowing how to explain in simple words very complicated philosophical concepts of Judaism. Besides he does it in such a candid manner that my eyes went wet several times. Believe me, if you want your child to understand the essence of Judaism, this the book to give him/her as a gift.

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 .
