"About the Book ""This book investigates Judaism at its best--and sanest. It strips away outdated and harmful beliefs that have accrued over the centuries and returns to the essential truths that are too-often ignored in favor of tradition, tribal identity, or the claims of the powerful. The result is a vibrant Judaism for the 21st century and beyond--a Judaism that draws deeply from history and scripture yet addresses the unmet needs of the present and the future. It is a Judaism that is open and accessible to everyone. Judaism without tribalism is a call to be a light unto the nations, and a blessing to all the people of the Earth. It is a Judaism free from legalism and tribalism--a Judaism that refuses to serve patriarchy and power. Written by one of today's most respected--and most unconventional--Jewish thinkers, Judaism Without Tribalism is a manifesto, an invitation to completeness, and a call for inner and outer spiritual revolution. It is also a deeply practical guide to living authentically, breath by breath and day by day""-- Book Synopsis ""Judaism Without Tribalism is a blessing, a much-needed challenge, and a deep well of wisdom and sanity."" --Natalie Goldberg, author of Writing Down the Bones This book investigates Judaism at its best--and sanest.

I say that every time Rabbi Rami writes a new book--and it's absolutely true. He is a master teacher full of love, wisdom and a reverent irreverence that illuminates both mind and heart."" --Dr. Joan Borysenko, New York Times bestselling author of Pocketful of Miracles and many other books ""Easy to read, yet deep and challenging in its wisdom, this book will be a bible for many who have rejected various Jewish orthodoxies but still know that there is a depth of wisdom in Judaism that they do not want to discard."" --Rabbi Michael Lerner, editor of Tikkun and author of the bestsellers The Left Hand of God and Jewish Renewal, and many other books ""I have been a fan of Rami Shapiro's for over three decades and his gifts to the world are considerable. Judaism Without Tribalism is quite possibly the jewel in his crown, a brilliant culmination of his work to repair and return us to the profound mystical depths of the ancient Jewish tradition. Crisp, cogent, utterly lucid, this book is, as its title suggests, a blessed relief for all true seekers."" --Rabbi Tirzah Firestone, PhD, author of Wounds Into Wisdom: Healing Intergenerational Jewish Trauma, The Woman's Kabbalah, and other books ""Rami Shapiro calls on us to question authorities of our time, within Jewish life and in our broader world, identifying the sacred precisely in what others see as 'strange.'"" --Dan Libenson and Lex Rofeberg, co-hosts of the Judaism Unbound podcast ""Rabbi Rami is a great mystical teacher."" --Andrew Harvey, author of The Direct Path and many other spiritual books ""Rabbi Rami fuses intellect, passion, and humor in a beautiful and powerful way that radiates truth."" --Wayne Teasdale, author of The Mystic Heart and many other spiritual books ""An influential religious leader confronts Jewish tribalism in this spiritual guide.

In this book, he continues a lifelong career of promoting an accessible, theologically liberal, and inclusive brand of Judaism by providing a succinct 'manifesto' for 'Judaism without tribalism.' While acknowledging the tribal origins of Judaism, the author is less concerned with parsing 'Who is a Jew?' (which, to him, is anyone 'who claims to be a Jew') as he is in articulating 'Judaism as a more open, welcoming, and universal path for Self-realization...and world repair.'
