Rabbi Jeffrey Salkin is one of American Judaism’s most-published and most-quoted thought leaders. Ever since his first book, Putting God on the Guest List: How to Reclaim The Spiritual Meaning of Your Child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah (Jewish Lights Publishing), Rabbi Salkin has been known for his writing, teaching and activism. He spends his waking hours pondering and teaching about such questions as: “What is the Jewish mission in the world today?” “Why is Zionism a problematic word for so many people?” “How can we help non-Jews find role models in Jewish history?” and “How do we make Judaism meaningful to teens?”
