Rabbi Dr. Nathan Lopes Cardozo is on a life mission to liberate Jewish law from what he considers its artificial Diaspora codification.

An organic, even prophetic halakha (Jewish law), revived as Am Yisrael (the People of Israel) has returned to our homeland provides new challenges and opportunities, he opines.

Do we experience God in our lives? Is doubt is better than certainty? Where’s the awareness of amazement? Rabbi Cardozo’s new book “Jewish Law as Rebellion: A Plea for Religious Authenticity and Halachic Courage” will, says the interviewer, bring tears to your eyes, ideas to your mind, hope to your heart and a song to your soul.

Eve Harrow interviews Rabbi Lopes Cardozo and feels that this introspective warrior for Judaism and humanity needs the People of Israel to put his groundbreaking proposals to work.
