About - Basic Beliefs of Judaism - 3 Audio CD Series

What does it mean to be Jewish in practical terms? What do Jews believe and how do they function in the everyday world? What are the values of humanity that we espouse, teach and practice. This series enables the listener to formulate answers to these basic questions of faith and practice. It will enhance Jewish knowledge, commitment and pride, and provide thought-provoking insights into the mystery of eternal Jewish existence and self-pride.

Features - Basic Beliefs of Judaism - 3 Audio CD Series

Individual Lectures in the Series:
  • Theology - Fundamentally, Judaism is a religion distinct from any other. Our belief in the One G-d has set us apart from the rest of the world. Rabbi Wein takes us through the ages, from the spiritually backward pagan world which our Biblical heroes confronted, all the way to the modern day, in which new forms of idolatry, such as narcissism and celebrity worship, dominate. To maintain our faith in the face of these forces takes both devotion and sophistication of mind. Yet in strengthening our understanding of the One Creator to Whom there is no likeness, we merit to be the people to whom there is no likeness.

  • Sanctity of Life - In Judaism, human life is of paramount value. Our mitzvos reflect our innate holiness, and we must treat our fellow man accordingly. Yet the Tanach is brimming with stories of war and violence. Rabbi Wein takes on the complex questions of life and death: of capital punishment, euthanasia, abortion, and even the current conflict in Israel. He examines them through the lens of Torah, clarifying the correct attitude Jews must have toward life itself.

  • Human Sexuality - When Adam and Eve sinned by eating from the Tree of Knowledge, the mitzvah to "be fruitful and multiply" lost much of its potential for holiness. Their sin made it possible for humanity to degrade sexuality into a mere animalistic urge, a trend evident in the world at large. Seeing immorality requires a response, even from the innocent. Yet celibacy, which is both unnatural and anti-family, is also not the Jewish way. Outlining the advice of our sages, Rabbi Wein explains how Jews must follow the balanced, middle path, even in sexuality. By recognizing sexuality as a G-d-given human need, something to be controlled but not eradicated, it can be restored to the state G-d first intended, as a means to holiness.
