Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis, one of the most respected spiritual leaders and
teachers of his generation, has been a rabbi at Valley Beth
Shalom in Encino, California, for close to forty years. He is
the founding chairman of the Jewish Foundation for the
Righteous, an organization that identifies and offers grants to
those non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jews threatened
by the agents of Nazi savagery. He is also the founder of Jewish
World Watch, which aims to raise moral consciousness within the
Jewish community. Synagogues and other religious institutions
are now supporting this effort across the country.
Rabbi Schulweis is the author of many
books, including: Conscience: The Duty to Obey and the Duty to Disobey (Jewish Lights), Approaches to the
Philosophy of Religion, For Those Who Can’t Believe,
Finding Each Other in Judaism, In God’s Mirror, and two books of original religious poetry and
meditation—From Birth to
Immortality and Passages in Poetry. His Evil and the Morality of God is regarded as a classic.
