Rabbi Moskowitz’s first book, Textual Activism, is a collection of essays, articles, and speeches that sits at the intersection of deeply traditional rabbinic texts and radically progressive Jewish values. “With this book,” writes Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum, “we are proud to gather together so many of these works of intellectual, spiritual, and activist Jewish depth that will bring glory to God and change the world.”
