German rabbi, scholar, and theologian Abraham Geiger (1810--1874) isrecognized as the principal leader of the Reform movement in German Judaism. In hisnew work, Ken Koltun-Fromm argues that for Geiger personal meaning in religion --rather than rote ritual practice or acceptance of dogma -- was the key to religion'smoral authority. In five chapters, the book explores issues central to Geiger's workthat speak to contemporary Jewish practice -- historical memory, biblicalinterpretation, ritual and gender practices, rabbinic authority, and Jewisheducation. This is essential reading for scholars, rabbis, rabbinical students, andinformed Jewish readers interested in Conservative and ReformJudaism.
