Lynn Gottlieb, first woman ordained rabbi in the Jewish Renewal movement, gives, hereby, a fundamental work on Jewish nonviolence, outcome of a meaning, a working and an involved life in Jewish faith, nonviolence, constructive peace building, interfaith understanding, feminism, social justice and performing arts. In March 2002, Lynn Gottlieb cofounded the Muslim-Jewish PeaceWalk for Interfaith Solidarity with Abdur’ Rauf Campos-Marquetti, imam from the Islamic Center of New Mexico. Together they brought the Peacewalk to 18 cities throughout the United States and Canada. Many of the walks they helped initiate are ongoing. Lynn Gottlieb is one of the leaders of the American branch of the IFOR (International Fellowship of Reconciliation, cf., a multifaith group founded in August 1914 dedicated to waging nonviolence.
    Lynn Gottlieb was listed among the 50 most influential rabbis regarded in the United States of America.
    This book is a magnificent message for love, peace and hope, not only concerning the Jewish community, but for the whole world as well, and in particular allows a good understanding between the believers of varied religions and acts in order to achieve the peaceful resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
    Beresheet bara Elohim, “In the beginning Elohim created”, and he is the Life… The heard and transmitted by Moses Commandments urge us on and on: “You will love”, “You will love…”. “The entire Torah for the sake of peace.” “Speak love, teach love, be love, for the sake of the next generation, make your life a loving example” (extract quoted from an evening prayer). Lynn Gottlieb holds this living demand shared by those who have faith in the power of nonviolence to heal deadly conflict, restore justice and bring peace to the wounded heart of humanity. Through her analysis of practical and religious nonviolence and through her artistic approach, she broadens the way and leads us step by step toward an understanding of Jewish nonviolence applied to contemporary issues in the world today.
    Between the introduction and the conclusion, this Trail Guide allows in fact seven stages:
    The first section, What about the Holocaust?, addresses the most serious question Jewish people raise when considering active nonviolence as a Jewish way of life: would it have worked against the Nazis?
    The second section, The Roots of Jewish Nonviolence, provides readers with a more complete introduction to Jewish nonviolence by exploring seven guiding principles that comprise the Torah of nonviolence and the texts that guide their understanding.
    Hitorrarut (Self-awakening), the third section of the Trail Guide, attends to the inner dimensions of a spiritual life dedicated to Jewish nonviolence. It offers the reader ceremony and ritual that draws upon liturgical, kabbalistic, hasidic and feminist sources that nourish the inner life. It also introduces a kavannah kedusha (sacred intention) which can be recited daily as a preparation for a day in the life of a shomeret shalom (practitioner of nonviolent peace stewardship).
    Hakhnasat Shalom (Welcoming Peace), the fourth section of the Guide, lifts up the art of hospitality dedicated to social justice. Hospitality, in the language of shmirat shalom (religious system of nonviolent peace stewardship, with two main broad categories: non-cooperation and constructive peace building), is the creation of a climate of welcome for the voices of people directly endangered by violence, as well as the work of networking, coalition and cross movement building.
    Section five, Shomer Lashon (the Language of Peace), examines the cultural resources within Judaism that promote nonviolent communication and fruitful dialogue.
    Section six, Tzedek Tzedek Tirdof (Justice justice you shall pursue), addresses the nitty gritty of popular struggle, resistance and non-cooperation. What is the place of dialogue in social movement building? How do we build a movement for change? How do we develop a strategy, plan an action, prepare for the long haul? This section explores the strategy and tactics of nonviolent resistance in the framework of social movement building.
    Section seven, The Question of Palestine, addresses the issue of Palestine and Israeli Occupation at length. How does Palestinian and Jewish nonviolence intersect to create a hopeful future for Jewish Palestinian relationships? Why have thousands of Jewish activists come to support the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement? This section explores the profoundly divisive issues that face organizers and activists in the field of Palestinian and Israeli conflict transformation.
