  • About the Author
  • Discover how the tenants of Judaism still apply in our modern world.
    Presented in the form of letters from a rabbi to his sons, Why Judaism Matters is common sense guidance and a road map for a new generation of young men and women who find Jewish orthodoxy, tradition, issues, and beliefs impenetrable in 21st Century society. By intimately illustrating how the tenants of Judaism still apply in our modern world, Rabbi John Rosove gives heartfelt direction to the sons and daughters of reform Jews everywhere.
    Rabbi John Rosove, a native of Los Angeles, assumed his duties as Senior Rabbi of Temple Israel of Hollywood in November 1988. John is also the National Chairman of the Association of Reform Zionists of America (ARZA – the Zionist arm of the Union for Reform Judaism representing 1.5 million American Reform Jews). He serves as well on the Board of the American Friends of the Israel Movement for Progressive Judaism (IMPJ) and the Advisory Committee of the Daniel Center of Tel Aviv. He is an International Vice-Chair of Rabbis for Women of the Wall (WOW). He was a delegate on the ARZENU slate at the 2015 World Zionist Congress in Jerusalem. John writes a regular blog that appears at the Los Angeles Jewish Journal, and he and his wife, Barbara, are the parents of two sons, Daniel and David.
