Far from being meek and mild, Reform rabbis can get very angry. Twenty-one of them have written short essays about what provokes their ire and they have been collected in a book edited by Rabbi Dr Jonathan Romain and published by Reform Judaism.
The subjects cover major fault-lines in society or the injustice we inflict on others, be it online abuse, climate change, Israel, social exclusion, cruelty to animals, antisemitism, the invisibility of women, business ethics, the integration of converts to Judaism, the wellness industry, and arguing intolerantly.
It also asks what makes God angry, as well as reflecting on anger itself and when it can be helpful or unhelpful, productive or narcissistic.
It makes a fascinating read for you, as well as an ideal present for someone else. Find out what they say and judge whether they are right.
