Religion, Power, and Politics: An Exchange

In our Summer 2016 issue, Rabbi Shlomo Riskin reviewed Not in God’s Name: Confronting Religious Violence by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks. Rabbi Riskin’s original article can be found here.

The review ignited a discussion on the role of power, political and otherwise, in Judaism. Rabbi Sacks penned a response to that review for our Fall 2016 issue; it can be found here.

Rabbi Riskin’s rejoinder to Rabbi Sacks, also appearing in the Fall 2016 issue, can be found here.
