Fascinating Statement

“Judaism is but the name by which a holy community—a people—passed into the modern world. Judaism is not a religion; the Jewish people has a religion.” —Arthur A. Cohen, The Myth of the Judeo-Christian Tradition, Harper & Row, New York, 1970, p. 57.

I'm pretty sure I don't fully understand that statement yet, but I think it makes for something interesting to chew on. The entire book is no less difficult, but, I think, ultimately rewarding. Collapse )
