“Goldstein backs up the title [Gonzo Judaism] with a legitimately creative and irreverent idea about how to engage with Judaism anew: Look to the old. . . . This is clearly one promising rabbi: he has equal knowledge of (and appreciation for) both ancient tradition and contemporary life.”—The Washington Post Book World
“Rabbi Goldstein has written a ‘Fear and Loathing on the Torah Trail’ that’s kick-ass but also wise and full of good ideas for what ails American Judaism. He shows that the greatest reverence can come from irreverence.”—Newsweek
"Goldstein's writing is quick and direct; he's bold enough to say things most Jews are afraid to utter."—Jewish Chronicle
