Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “To fight my way.”

I come from a nonreligious family, and I have been educated in a strange mixed-up world – a world of nonreligious Israel – but in a very Jewish way.

It is a strange combination.

In my case it was a very Jewish background of people who were interested in being Jewish on the one hand, but on the other hand were, perhaps, entirely irreligious.

From that background I had to fight my way to religion.
