All too often Jewish education focuses on what we ought to do and how we are supposed to do it. These concepts are important and are discussed in our parallel blog The Jewish Blog of How.
However, most people rightly feel that they want to know why they should do something before they decide whether to take part.
This mini blog is a voyage of discovery into the why's of Judaism as we look at classical and contemporary ideas in an easily assessable and user friendly way.
Please don't expect these posts to be the last word on the topic. We never claim to know THE definitive reason, rather we can explore and suggest a reason or possible explanations.
Hopefully the answers will lead to even more questions as we delve deeper together.
