Edgar Bronfman chimes in NYTimes
Q & A with Edgar Bronfman.
Q Numero Uno – As the former head of Seagram and a billionaire philanthropist who has spent much of his fortune battling anti-Semitism worldwide, you have just written a book, “Hope, Not Fear,” that argues for a kind of neo-Judaism that loosens up the rules of observance, welcomes converts and has nothing to do with synagogue.
A: I don’t know that I would call it neo-Judaism. The Jewish part will remain, but it’s our attitude that has to change. Instead of shunning people who marry out, we need to welcome them. I think that if we want to grow Judaism, we have to accept interfaith marriage for what it is.
Jigga What!? …TELL ME YOU DON’T WANT TO READ THE REST OF THIS Q & A!
