HMV Program – Jewish Men at the Crossroads

It’s often said that, when lost or at a crossroads, men refuse to ask for directions. They would rather stubbornly wander around or go the wrong way than admitting they need help. Here is a phenomenal GPS for men seeking a way forward. “The Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs has done it again — a terrific anthology of reflections on men’s issues that will enhance your relationships with others, with the community, with Judaism, and with your self.” -Dr. Ron Wolfson, Fingerhut Professor of Education, American Jewish University; and author, Relational Judaism: Using the Power of Relationships to Transform the Jewish Community (Jewish Lights Publishing)

“This volume boldly asks the questions in public that the community is privately wondering about Jewish men, their family roles and their future place in the synagogue and Jewish community.” -Rabbi Kerry Olitzky, Executive Director of the Jewish Outreach Institute and author of many books that bring Jewish wisdom into everyday life, including, most recently, as coeditor of Jewish Men Pray (Jewish Lights Publishing).

  • How do we explain the disappearance of men from the Jewish community?
  • Why do so many of today’s Jewish men find their experience in the synagogue unfulfilling? Indeed why do they stay?

Jewish Men at the Crossroads addresses these and other questions facing modern Jewish men — everything from intermarriage to co-parenting, sexual dysfunction to retirement, the role of men in a post-feminist world to the role of God in men’s lives. Jewish Men at the Crossroads is essential reading for today’s Jewish man. To purchase this volume, click here.
