Breaking the Spell of Sinai

Daniel ReiselFilmed at JHub

Like most religions, the teachings of Judaism are thought to be divinely revealed and therefore beyond mere human question. Yet a detailed reading of the Hebrew Bible suggests the opposite view: instead of being about revelation, Sinai can be read as a story of anti-revelation, a stark warning of the dangers of subordinating our moral imagination to divine decree.

Daniel is a doctor, researcher and educator. He is interested in the origins of human morality and passionate about opening up conversations across disciplines and denominations. A past programming co-chair of Limmud Conference and Limmud Fest, he currently chairs the board of Yachad.
