Banyen's Description: 

"Judaism Without Tribalism is a blessing, a much-needed challenge, and a deep well of wisdom and sanity." —Natalie Goldberg, author of Writing Down the Bones

This book investigates Judaism at its best—and sanest. It strips away outdated and harmful beliefs that have accrued over the centuries and returns to the essential truths that are too-often ignored in favor of tradition, tribal identity, or the claims of the powerful. The result is a vibrant Judaism for the 21st century and beyond—a Judaism that draws deeply from history and scripture yet addresses the unmet needs of the present and the future. It is a Judaism that is open and accessible to everyone.

Judaism without tribalism is a call to be a light unto the nations, and a blessing to all the people of the earth. It is a Judaism free from legalism and tribalism—a Judaism that refuses to serve patriarchy and power.

Religion at its best sheds its biases/beliefs leaving one naked before the existential facts of reality: that we are all expressions of a wild, glorious and chaotic process I call YHVH, a process capable of producing both light and dark, good and evil... Religion at its best welcomes testing, and those who test truth are called sages... Religion at its best honors the inner search for Truth... In this book we will investigate Judaism as a religion at its best.

Written by one of today's most respected—and most unconventional—Jewish thinkers, Judaism Without Tribalism is a manifesto, an invitation to completeness, and a call for inner and outer spiritual revolution. It is also a deeply practical guide to living authentically, breath by breath and day by day.

"Crisp, cogent, utterly lucid, this book is, as its title suggests, a blessed relief for all true seekers." Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, author of Wounds Into Wisdom: Healing Intergenerational Jewish Trauma

"Orthodox Jews will, of course, bristle at the work’s progressive spirituality, universalization of Judaism, and critiques of tradition. But the book succeeds in its mission to 'make Judaism accessible to everyone' by providing a Jewish lens that could be of use in the spiritual journeys of Jews and non-Jews alike. A compelling, progressive reorientation of an ancient faith." —Kirkus Reviews
