Erica Brown - Confronting Scandal: How Jews Can Respond When Jews Do Bad Things
Jews seem to be in the news today for all of the wrong reasons. Whether it is Bernie Madoff or money laundering by rabbinic leaders, the Jewish community has yet to take stock of what these breaches of civil law and Jewish ethical teachings mean for us as a people. How do we manage collective discomfort and shame? How do we explain rabbis who commit sex offenses or other crimes yet stand at the pulpit week after week offering others moral guidance? And most importantly, how do we restore honor and dignity to our community by raising the ethical bar and adherence to it?  This book explores the difficult and thorny issues surrounding scandals: airing dirty laundry in public, coming to terms with criminality among Jews, examining painful stereotypes of Jews and the difficult position of being a minority in society. A call for us to answer to a higher authority, it also addresses practical ways to strengthen ethical behavior and "do good things" to bring pride back, and to engender greater self-respect and the respect of others.
