Can Robots Be Jewish?
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.

‘This book is a treasure, filled with stories of remarkable Jewish women. Some of the names will sound familiar, many are not; all deserve more attention for their courage and determination. It‘s great reading for girls—and boys—eager for role models--and the rest of the family too!’
ANN F. LEWIS, FORMER WHITE HOUSE COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR
