Why Do Jewish?: A Manifesto for 21st Century Jewish Peoplehood
FREE & Open to the Community
Insisting that taking action is what matters most, Zack Bodner proposes a creative new framework for doing Jewish based on an acronym from the Yiddish word TACHLIS, which means “getting down to brass tacks.”
T – Tikkun Olam (repairing the world)
A – Art and Culture
C – Community
H – Holidays and Rituals
L – Learning
I – Israel
S – Shabbat and Spirituality
Through a combination of personal stories, insights from some of the world’s greatest teachers, and contemporary analysis, Bodner provides an accessible guide for anyone looking for answers to life’s most important questions.
Bodner is the CEO of the Oshman Family JCC and the former Pacific Northwest Regional Director for AIPAC.
He’s a seeker, writer, storyteller, community organizer, and above all else, a doer.
“Zack Bodner has done that rare thing — written a book that makes those of us who love being Jewish want to revisit the tradition anew, and those who have written off Judaism want to take a second look. Why Do Jewish explains our magical inheritance in concrete, accessible, relevant terms, and gives us a roadmap to explore it, understand it, practice it, and pass it on.”
- Abigail Pogrebin, author of “My Jewish Year: 18 Holidays, One Wondering Jew”
Presented as a part of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater and Simon Family JCC's Lee and Bernard Jaffe Family Jewish Book Festival.
