A new prayer book recently issued by the Jewish Reconstructionist movement is breaking new ground in American Judaism in its concern for feminist language, ecology and personal spirituality. "It's a do-it-yourself prayer book. . . . It doesn't have to be used only in synagogues, so more Jews will use it at home," said Rabbi David A. Teutsch, editor-in-chief of the prayer book. Called in Hebrew "Kol Haneshama," the prayer book was introduced in September.

In my second year of seminary, years ago, I became convinced that if I tried to understand Jesus without taking into consideration the Jewish culture and society of which he was part, I was probably going to come up with some very real distortions of his message and his life. When I took my first class on the Talmud, writings contemporary with Jesus' time, I was struck by the similarities of some of Jesus' recorded lessons and the themes and styles of other Jewish teachings of the era.

Soon they settle at assigned tables, an almost equal ratio of male to female at each, the overflow standing in back. Tonight's topic at 20-Something is business ethics. On similar occasions, the discussions have carried more provocative titles: "Fatal Attraction: Do You Love Me or Lust Me" or "Oh No! 30-Something! How to Deal With Growing Old!"
