“Visionary peacemakers can look to the past and find inspiration for reconciliation from our tradition and for healing in the future. When it comes to Torah, ‘all its paths are peace.’ Rabbi Lewis helps the reader not only to find these paths, but also, to embark on them.”

“Thanks to this moving and passionate collection, one may now read the 5 Books of Moses in the light not only of the surprising and persistent voices of our tradition who see peace in verse after verse of Torah, but accompanied by the inspiring presence of a passionate guide and teacher. This anthology promises many hours of satisfying study and contemplation individually, in adult study, in the classrooms of our synagogues and temples, and on college campuses.”

“Rabbi Sheldon Lewis has written a brilliant and accessible volume, The Torah of Reconciliation, that will be a valued asset to rabbis, clergy, and imams worldwide who daily labor for justice, reconciliation, and peace between their faith communities, and nationally and internationally. In addition to serving as an individual study guide for religious professionals, this book will be a worthy addition to conversations between religious leaders and within intentional interreligious dialogue groups.”

“Rabbi Lewis’ introduction on Peacemaking in Jewish Tradition is the best article that I have ever read on the subject. It is thorough, well-documented and convincing. I would say that it is a “must read” for anyone who wants to know how deeply the search for peace and reconciliation is central in Judaism.”
