Product Details


“Tal Keinan has written an extraordinarily powerful work on Jewish identity in the twenty-first century. Enthralling, searching, profound and compellingly written, it should be read by everyone concerned about the Jewish future.”—Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, former Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth and author of Not in God’s Name

“Beautifully written, brilliantly argued, this is a unique contribution to the conversation and a must read for anyone concerned with Jewish continuity.”—Yossi Klein Halevi, author of Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor

God Is in the Crowd blends social science, economics, religion, and national identity to help us see more clearly who we are as individuals, people, and a society.”—Dan Ariely, author of The Upside of Irrationality

“American, Israeli, entrepreneur, fighter pilot, and investor: Keinan’s diagnosis of Israel and the Jewish Diaspora is provided through the lens of a rich and gripping life story. Keinan’s contribution is indispensable to the debate about the future of the Jewish people.”—Dan Senor, co-author of Start-up Nation

“Part memoir and part road map for the way forward, a book that is both intensely personal and imbued with a collective vision . . . an audacious and compelling read.”—Daphne Merkin, author of This Close to Happy

“We need Keinan’s astute readings of Israel’s current position and his unexpected glimpses of a possible future to make our way through these murky times.”—Judith Shulevitz, author of The Sabbath World

“Tal Keinan offers a uniquely modern vision of community as framework for identity, a timely challenge to the contemporary ethic of individualism. This is an important book, and not just for Jewish readers.”—Cokie Roberts

“A meaningful attempt to answer a significant question: How can Judaism survive? . . . [Tal Keinan] provides an impassioned yet well-reasoned and definitively well-written reflection on an imperiled people. A thoughtful and relevant assessment of the current state of Judaism.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
