What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Of Tribes and Tribulations" is Kenneth D. Roseman's capstone work reflecting a fifty year career as college dean, congregational rabbi, scholar, and writer. With an 'introduction' that reveals a remarkable childhood and education, its twelve chapters are filled with honesty, humor, humanity, and wisdom. The author grapples with every major Jewish religious and historical issue from the changing perspectives of a rabbi, shaped by but transcending his Classical Reform upbringing. Each page reflects Roseman's 'religious humanism,' his thoughtful spiritual curiosity, and his constant quest to understand the covenant between God and the Jewish people."

—Lewis M. Barth, former Dean, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, Los Angeles, CA

"In these delightful essays, Ken Roseman takes us on a personal and intellectual journey through the most vexing questions of our time. Part apologetic, part memoir, part call to action, Of Tribes and Tribulations is filled with wisdom, honesty, and tenderness. It is a thoughtful, moving exploration of the meaning and value of Jewishness in the 21st century."

—Peter N. Moore, Associate Professor of History, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, Corpus Christi, TX
