somewhat suspended since the end of the
S.A.J. Review
several
years earlier. Except for the years of his visits to Israel, approxi­
mately a half dozen articles have been written by him each year
for
The Reconstructionist.
In addition, he has been responsible
for the regular columns, “Random Thoughts” and “Know How
T o Answer.” A number of these articles later appeared in book
form. Their general subject matter can be subsumed under the
headings of the reinterpretation of the concepts of God, Torah
and the Jewish people, and the elaboration and application of
Reconstructionism. Articles appeared elsewhere too: in
Opinion,
Jewish Education, The Menorah Journal, Hadassah Newsletter,
Commentary, The National Jewish Monthly, Current Religious
Thought, The Jewish Review, Conservative Judaism, Jewish
Frontier,
and
Hebrew Union College Annual.
A significant article
on the similarities and differences between Reform Judaism and
Reconstructionism appeared in the
C.C.A.R. Journal.
Hebrew articles were printed in both American and Israeli
periodicals:
Hadoar, Bitzaron, Ha-aretz, Hed Ha-hinukh;
and in
the collection of essays published to mark the thirty-fifth jubilee
of the Teachers Institute of The Jewish Theological Seminary
of America.
