Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book David R. Blumenthal: Living with God and Humanity contains the table of contents, editors' introduction to series and a list of contributors. The life, career, and writings of David R. Blumenthal encapsulate the richness of American Jewish life in the second half of the twentieth century. As the son of a leading Conservative rabbi, Rabbi Aaron H. Blumenthal, Blumenthal, who is also an ordained Conservative rabbi, exemplifies the main features of Conservative Judaism in America: the commitment to traditional Jewish observance, acknowledgment of Judaism's historical evolution, commitment to the academic study of Judaism, loyalty to Zionism and the State of Israel, openness to egalitarianism, and engagement in Jewish-Christian dialogue in the post-Holocaust era.

Keywords: David R. Blumenthal; Israel; Judaism's historical evolution; Zionism
