Can Robots Be Jewish? And Other Pressing Questions of Modern Life 
Should we edit our children’s genes?  Are there things that can’t be forgiven?  Are Jews still expecting a messiah? Is Judaism good for women? Should Jews strive to be happy?  Do Jews believe in the afterlife?  Can robots be Jewish? In this book, rabbis spanning the range of modern Jewish thought, from Humanist and Reform to Orthodox and beyond, consider these difficult and provocative questions and many others. Sometimes they agree – but not often. Editor Amy E. Schwartz provides delightful commentary, celebrating the rabbinic impulse to question every assumption and highlighting the many and sometimes surprising ways ancient texts can speak to us today. The Religion News Service says: “The most intriguing books on religion we read this year,” Can Robots Be Jewish? is a must read!
