Future Tense demonstrates once again Rabbi Sacks's ability to construct a compelling forward-looking vision of Judaism from classical texts. that inspires many on both sides of the Atlantic. I had changed my stereotypical perception on Jews, Judaism and Israel in general. This is very profoundly well written and precisely delivers its message. I highly recommend Future tense to anyone who somehow lacks of qualitative information on this matter.

We are in danger, says Rabbi Sacks, of forgetting what Judaism's place is within the global project of humankind. The Jewish people exist for a reason, and it is not for themselves alone. Rabbi Sacks’s powerful message of tikkum olam-using Judaism as a blueprint for repairing an imperfect world-will resonate with people of all faiths. Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group.

Jonathan Sacks begins by issuing stark warnings about the current state of the Jews. They have lost their way, lost touch with their soul: "the Jewish people today as divided as it was in the last days of the Second Temple. There's fear abroad and a dangerous sense of isolation. How did things reach this pass? After all, "Jewish life in the diaspora is flourishing", so these are neither the worst nor the best of times, he says, "but they are the most challenging", and the challenges cannot be met by turning inwards

Rabbi Jonathan Sacks has been Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew .

Rabbi Jonathan Sacks has been Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of Great Britain and the Commonwealth since 1991 and has received honorary degrees from universities around the world. In this bold and courageous work, Sacks implores world Jewry to reject the long-held notion that Jews are a people alone in the world and surrounded by enemies.

Future Tense (Paperback). Jonathan Sacks (author). overarching vision for the future of Judaism, Jewish life and Israel for the twenty-first century. We need to persuade Jews and non-Jews alike that Jews, Judaism and Israel have something unique to contribute to the future. FUTURE TENSE does this. It moves beyond the 'they hate us' school of Jewish thought to provide an overarching vision for the future of Judaism, Jewish life and Israel for the twenty-first century.

One of the most admired religious thinkers of our time issues a call for world Jewry to reject the self-fulfilling image of “a people alone in the world, surrounded by enemies” and to reclaim Judaism’s original sense of purpose: as a partner with God and with those of other faiths in the never-ending struggle for freedom and social justice for all.  We are in danger, says Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, of forgetting what Judaism’s place is within the global project of humankind. During the last two thousand years, Jews have lived through persecutions that would have spelled the end of most nations, but they did not see anti-Semitism written into the fabric of the universe. They knew they existed for a purpose, and it was not for themselves alone. Rabbi Sacks believes that the Jewish people have lost their way, that they need to recommit themselves to the task of creating a just world in which the divine presence can dwell among us.  Without compromising one iota of Jewish faith, Rabbi Sacks declares, Jews must stand alongside their friends—Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, and secular humanist—in defense of freedom against the enemies of freedom, in affirmation of life against those who desecrate life. And they should do this not to win friends or the admiration of others but because it is what a people of God is supposed to do. Rabbi Sacks’s powerful message of tikkun olam—using Judaism as a blueprint for repairing an imperfect world—will resonate with people of all faiths.

Any book written by Rabbi Lord Sachs is a miniature university education. This book is no different. Picking up on common threads and streams of wisdom, Sacks puts Jewish life and faith into the perspective of optimism.

Crucially, We learn with Sacks that we must yearn for a future of great success. When we do, we take care of things today and thus improve our status.

Judaism has the ability to be both ancient and totally updated every time. That doesn't mean you have to change some of the laws (or ignore them, saying they're so old-fashioned). But sometimes also observant jews miss the point of judaism by sticking only to the rituals and customs, isolating themselves in a (virtual or not) ghetto.

This book comes to counteract to both problems. It takes the time to explain "What is to be a Jew" specially in our times; what is needed for jewish continuity. And what are the problems that Jews and Israel have today, including the author's own vision for a solution.

Every chapter connects with the next and it's very easy to read and understand.

I randomly found Future tense in Barnes & Noble and from the beginning it caught my attention. The next three weeks I spent reading it and love it. I had changed my stereotypical perception on Jews, Judaism and Israel in general. This is very profoundly well written and precisely delivers its message. I highly recommend Future tense to anyone who somehow lacks of qualitative information on this matter. After this piece of work, I changed my behavior in a positive mood and the part on contribution to civilization was very revealing. Would I recommend to read this book? Yes, absolutely.

If you are reading this review, you have already thought about buying it. You should, it speaks volumes about the world we are in and revisits scary concepts about how Jews are at risk for imploding and disappearing. Well written and well researched to boot. A must read.

Still not finished, however thus far I find the work well constructed and thought out. With the authors experience as a member of The House of Lords for over twenty years and being the Chief Rabbi of London, he is very qualified to comment on the future of the Jewish communities in England/Europe/ and Israel.

This book should be read and studied by anyone interested in Judaica and the Jewish religion and history. Even though it is very easy to read there is a lot of information in it.
