Finding a Uniquely Jewish Path to Peace

Book cover“As we commemorate the 9th of Adar we need to recognize the centrality of peace to the collective mission of the Jewish people in the world.” Read Alick Isaacs article on Finding a Uniquely Jewish Path to Peace.

Dr. Alick Isaacs is author of “A Prophetic Peace: Judaism Religion and Politics” (Indiana University Press 2011) which argues that the central role of peace in the Jewish tradition can come in to view when the unique meaning of peace in Jewish thought is detached from its conventional meaning in modern politics. He is also co-director of “Talking Peace” (Siach Shalom) a project that he founded together with Dr. Avinoam Rosenak and Ms. Sharon Leshem-Zinger in 2010. Siach Shalom creates opportunities for dynamic group dialogue about peace inside Israel placing a particular emphasis on engaging political, social and intellectual leaders from the left and center with Religious-Zionist Rabbis from the ideological settlements.
