Renewing the Covenant

In the 1990s Reform thinker, Eugene Borowitz capped a monumental career with his magnum opus, Renewing the Covenant. In it he traces the emergence of postmodern Jewish philosophy from the disaster of the Shoah, and describes a potential new approach to our tradition, one that recenters God in our language and practice. This session will sample the Borowitz texts that can help us reimagine God’s Presence in our lives as we approach Shavuot and Sinai.
