“Remix Judaism: Preserving Tradition in a Diverse World” offers an eloquent and thoughtful new vision for all Jews seeking a sense of belonging in a changing world, regardless of their current level of observance. Roberta Kwall sets out a process of selection, rejection, and modification of rituals that allow for a focus on Jewish tradition rather than on the technicalities of Jewish law. Her goal is not to sell her own religious practices to readers but, rather, to encourage them to find their own personal meaning in Judaism outside the dictates of Commandment, by broadening their understanding of how law, culture, and tradition fit together. She inspires readers to be intentional and mindful about the space they allocate for these elements in defining their individual Jewish journeys and identities.

Roberta Rosenthal Kwall is the Raymond P. Niro Professor at DePaul University College of Law. She graduated from the Brown University with a major in Religious Studies and the University of Pennsylvania Law School. She also has a master’s degree in Jewish Studies. Kwall is an internationally renowned scholar and lecturer and has published over 30 scholarly articles and book chapters on a wide variety of topics including Jewish law and culture, authorship rights, and intellectual property.

Kwall also has written three important books: “Remix Judaism: Preserving Tradition in a Diverse World,” (Rowman & Littlefield, 2020); “The Myth of the Cultural Jew: Culture and Law in Jewish Tradition” (Oxford UP, 2015) and “The Soul of Creativity” (Stanford UP, 2010). Currently Kwall is co-editing The Oxford Handbook of Jewish Law as well as writing an essay for this volume about lawmaking in the Conservative Movement.
