Why has Jewish identity, the product of such a long history, turned into a problem that has been troubling the minds of Jewish thinkers and Hebrew authors for more than two hundred years? Is it true that the core and substance of Judaism is the Jewish religion? Is a religious Jew "more Jewish" than a nonreligious one? The UNCOVERED HEAD - Principles of Jewish Secularity A NEW BOOK by Yedidya Itzhaki.

Prof Glendyr Sachs from Haifa University: "I think that the target readers of this book have probably had a more extensive Jewish education than I have had. That might make the book a different experience for them, but no less enjoyable. I remember the sense that each chapter seemed to prepare me for the next one, and that each grew more and more interesting. I think that's because I started the book not knowing very much about the subject, and learnt a lot along the way.

Can there be such a thing as secular Judaism? And if there can, how does it-how can it-function? These are the questions driving this challenging and deep-ranging book. Each receives a lucid, thoughtful and compelling answer from a committed secular humanist Jew.

Jewish Book Council, founded in 1944, is the longest-running organization devoted exclusively .

Jewish Book Council, founded in 1944, is the longest-running organization devoted exclusively to the support and celebration of Jewish literature. It doesn’t aim for comprehensiveness; rather, it seeks to offer a user-friendly A‑Z work of entries (both brief and of essay length) that, taken together, join in a celebration of the contribution of American Jews to the overall culture.

What is it that has turned Jewish identity, the product of such a long history, into a problem that has been troubling the minds of Jewish thinkers and Hebrew authors for over two hundred years now? Is it true that the core and substance of Judaism is the Jewish religion? Is a religious Jew 'more Jewish' than a non-religious one? Is it the case that only the Orthodox have held the line, preserving the continuity of Judaism from its origins to the present day? If so, what is Reform Judaism? What is Conservative Judaism? How are the Jewish and the Israeli identities related? And what interrelationships tie Israeli and Diaspora Jewry together? Can there be such a thing as secular Judaism? And if there can, how does it―how can it―function?These are the questions driving this challenging and deep-ranging book. Each receives a lucid, thoughtful and compelling answer from a committed secular humanist Jew. In the author's mind are the many Jews, and others, who want to be clear in their own minds what it means to be both Jewish and secular in today's world. Surveying the evolution of the Jewish people, and its culture and thinking, from the vantage point of contemporary secularism, this book describes the momentous results of Jewry's encounter with European humanism. It traces how, over the past two-and-a-half centuries, pluralism and secularism first took hold in the Jewish world and then steadily expanded until they are now, respectively, the dominant feature and the driving force in contemporary Judaism.

My name is Dr. Yedidya Itzhaki, I am the author of the book "The Uncovered Head", and I want to share with you a review that I have received from Prof Glendyr Sachs from Haifa University:

"I think that the target readers of this book have probably had a more extensive Jewish education than I have had. That might make the book a different experience for them, but no less enjoyable. I remember the sense that each chapter seemed to prepare me for the next one, and that each grew more and more interesting. I think that's because I started the book not knowing very much about the subject, and learnt a lot along the way. As I learnt, I became fascinated and more aware of the developments and sidetracks and anomalies described. I love how wide-ranging the book is, how it isn't afraid to touch on big issues and small details with equal attention; nor is it afraid to 'take sides' and declare its allegiances, while always being respectful towards the belief-systems and choices of others. I'm sure it will be a valuable addition to the secular Jewish library!

I have read the book "The Uncovered Head" by Yedidya Itzhaki and I was enriched by it, as the book teaches about the secular Jewish Israeli culture. The publication illuminates the usually overlooked secular culture in Israel. In an eloquent manner the writer explains basic terminology in Judaism. The book explores humanism and pluralism in relation to Judaism and in general. In addition, it traces back to the origins of Jewish culture and assimilation and all the different denominations in Judaism today. It continues to discuss Jewish living among non Jews and being assimilated, a topic which is of constant relevance.
It is an indispensible asset to a person interested in the renewing Jewish culture in Israel.
