This JPS ethics series deals with some of the most critical moral issues of our time; what are our obligations and rights to our own bodies? What does Judaism says about tattoos and Piercings? What about our obligations to exercise and eat properly? What about smoking, Alcohol and Recreational drugs? Who owns our organs? What about our eggs and sperm? If resources are limited, whose body comes first and how do we decide? Why do so many young Jews suffer from eating disorders? Each volume in this series presents traditional and contemporary sources on specific topics, followed by hypothetical cases and study questions to provoke discussion. Supplementing these are brief essays written by a diverse group - political figures and journalists, business professionals and authors, scholars and artists, young voices and old, traditional believers and iconoclasts. As a conclusion, Dorff and Newman present their own reflections, providing a counterpoint to the contributors' perspectives. These voices from the Jewish tradition and today's Jewish community give us new questions and perspectives to think about and encourage us to consider our moral choices in a new light. "Jewish Choices, Jewish Voices" takes a hard look at important and controversial topics of our time. Future volumes includes Power; War and National Security; Sexual Relations; and The Internet.

Review:

"The emphasis on questions, not answers, makes the Jewish Choices, Jewish Voices series different from many other ethical works . . . an excellent resource for readers seeking to lead more ethical lives."―The Reporter Source: The Reporter

"Jewish Choices, Jewish Voices is a series of short books that are designed to engage the lay public in ethical issues that face people in the choices they make on a daily basis . . . they are quite accessible for the lay readers."―The Jewish Press Source: The Jewish Press

Synopsis:

Struggling with questions of Jewish identity, values, or theology? Not sure how to reconcile Jewish history with its modern practice? Wondering what Judaism has to say to contemporary Jews about the meaning of life? An exploration of these issues and more can be found in these first two volumes of a six-part Jewish ethical series.Each book provides readers with an understanding of the Jewish perspectives on identity, values, spirituality, theology, history, and tradition as they relate to a host of important and often controversial topics: money, power, body issues, war and national security, life in the Internet age, and more.The books present hypothetical cases - some fictional, others based on real life experiences - followed by thought-provoking questions for the reader. Also included are selections from Jewish sources presenting teachings relevant to each case, along with summaries of how Jewish tradition has handled such issues over time. Finally, a group of diverse contributors of differing ages, backgrounds, and Jewish perspectives offers responses to the volume's themes and source materials, focusing especially on personal analysis and reflection.

At the end of each volume, the editors present their own reflections, offering balance and counterpoint to the contributors' viewpoints."Volume 1: Body" covers such topics as health and healing, beauty, aging, plastic surgery, obesity, eating disorders, tattoos and body piercing, physical exercise and risk-taking, self-esteem, gender issues, and much more - all through the lens of Jewish belief and tradition.
