Book presentation: Theodor Much Faszination Judentum
Theodor Much’s book—written for Christians as well as Jews—seeks to present the broad spectrum of Judaism in a way that is both easy to understand and critical. Not only are the theological foundations, festivals and traditions of Judaism described, but also often unknown issues or those deeply contested within Jewish communities, such as Jewish pluralism, the status of women (preferred or disadvantaged?), conversion to Judaism or what unites, respectively, separates Jews and Christians. Central topics range from religious anti-Judaism (“Who killed Rabbi Jesus?”), Christian and Islamic anti-Semitism and the founding of the State of Israel, all the way to anti-Zionism, a special form of hatred against Jews
Theodor Much, born in 1942, medical specialist for dermatology, president of the Jewish Reform Community Or Chadasch (“New Light”) Vienna since 1990, non-fiction author: numerous publications on religious topics, fundamentalism, superstition of all kinds and satirical essays.
