By its very nature, the ideals of religion entail sin and failure. Judaism has its own language and framework for sin that expresses themselves both legally and philosophically. Both legal questions – circumstances where sin is permissible or mandated, the role of intention and action – as well as philosophical questions – why sin occurs and how does Judaism react to religious crisis – are considered within this volume. This book will present the concepts of sin and failure in Jewish thought, weaving together biblical and rabbinic studies to reveal a holistic portrait of the notion of sin and failure within Jewish thought.
