Jewish religious movements, sometimes called "denominations" or "branches", include different groups which have developed among Jews from ancient times. Today, the main division is between the Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, and Reconstructionist movements, with several smaller movements alongside them. This denominational structure is mainly present in the United States, while in Israel, the fault lines are between the Orthodox and the non-religious.

Eric Nelson outlines this in his brilliant new book The Hebrew Republic, showing, for example, how the triumph of republican government over monarchy is in large part thanks to the Bible and the rabbis. Daniel Freedman Forbes. Nelson powerfully argues that had as its driving force an intense scholarly interest in the Israelite constitution, occasioned by the discovery of new Rabbinic texts and the growth of Hebrew scholarship in Europe.

Will Herberg was an American Jewish writer, intellectual and scholar. Implicit in this sociological explanation of the religious revival was the politically "good news" that most Americans now believed that all three religious communions were "legitimate. But, Herberg hastened to observe, there was a theological price to pay.

I am surprised to have written the first review on Amazon for this classic book. Who has made a better case for Judaism since Judaism and Modern Man was first published over sixty years ago?

Part I of the book's (the first 41 pages) starts off a little sluggish and could be skimmed, but in Part II Herberg finds his voice and does not mince words. He asserts that being in relationship with God is central to any religion that speaks to our existential dilemma: "The dereliction that overwhelms us is at once the despair of being abandoned in the universe and the agonizing consciousness that we are ultimately responsible for our own condition." Herberg then explains how Judaism guides us to a more meaningful relationship with God through reconciliation and atonement.

He is at his best when defending the concept of a personal God which so many progressive people see as childish and anthropomorphic. Herberg writes that God is made known through real experience and what is encountered is not a subhuman impersonal force because God is more than human not less. The idea of a personal God is not a limitation. It is an acknowledgement of God's fullness. Herberg insists that any religion that lends significance to individuals and relations with God must worship a personal God:

"Universal ideas are impersonal, and if salvation is through ideas, then of course the particularistic claims of Hebraic religion are absurd on the face of it. But if salvation is through personal relation and action, as both Judaism and Christianity affirm, the matter takes on an altogether different aspect. Truly personal relations are never universal; they are always concrete and particular.... If God is a Living God, operative in and through the particularities of history, then it no longer seems strange that he should effect his purposes through particular groups of people."

According to Herberg, our potential relationship with a personal God makes each person of infinite worth and therefore entitled to our love. This is why scripture requires love of stranger (Deut. 10:19) as well as of enemies (Proverbs 25:21), and it is the source of the belief in human equality that is at the core of Jewish and Western ethics.
