He invites those who have become disconnected from their Judaism to make it part of their core
BROOKLINE, Mass. — Author Lev Green encourages individual Jews, and especially those who have become disconnected from their religion, to understand the role they have to play in contributing to the tapestry of Judaism. A brilliant and complex design of individual threads interwoven over the past several millennia, the tapestry of Judaism has been critical to the advancement of humankind. The tapestry includes the Ten Commandments and the teachings of Torah, the moral code that has been at the core of the systems of law and justice in civilized countries over the centuries. The tapestry includes the vibrant threads woven by individual Jews who have been at the forefront of every important field of human endeavor: science and medicine, philosophy and religion, literature and the arts, law and jurisprudence, government and economics. The tapestry has been strengthened by the multitude of softer-color threads interwoven over the millennia by the millions of Jews who have quietly led their lives as righteous and honorable people and as good parents and teachers.
Weaving Your Thread in the Tapestry of Judaism is a highly readable book in which Green provides significant insights and wisdom as to Judaism’s place in the world and our place in Judaism. He makes a very strong case that one can derive additional meaning in life by making Judaism part of his or her core. The tapestry of Judaism continues to be woven, and it is critical that every Jew weave his or her thread so that we may reaffirm our covenant with God to work for a more perfect world.
Motivated by his love of Judaism, Green invites readers to enter through any of the portals through which they can be connected—synagogue, Torah study, havurah, music, brotherhood and sisterhood, meditation and Tikkun Olam—and let them experience the richness of the gifts of Judaism. The book will inspire readers to weave their thread so that the tapestry may continue to be strong and its brilliance may shine for all humankind.
