Jeremy Rosen is a respected Rabbi and thought-provoking journalist who has been at the forefront of Jewish Education for over twenty years. This book is a selection of some of his most interesting articles covering a diverse range of topics. Whether it is music, art or politics; Jeremy Rosen gives them all his own individual style.

Running through all of them is a unique sense of humor, a universal idealism and large doses of human sensitivity. Sometimes provocative, but always honest, Jeremy Rosen has chosen the life of a maverick on the borders of his community, to show that there are many ways of being Jewish and experiencing the beauty of its traditions. Jeremy Rosen is the eldest son of Kopul Rosen, the man responsible for founding Carmel College.

He attended Cambridge University where he obtained a degree in philosophy. After university, Jeremy spent time at some of the most well respected places of learning in Israel.
