Yeshayahu Leibowitz on ‘Jewish Values’

My own summary:

  • Judaism consists only of keeping Halacha. All other Jewish source-texts comprise either commentary of Halacha or encouragement to keep Halacha.
  • Sociology is meaningless from a Jewish religious perspective.
  • No other Jewish “worldview” or “value system” or “commitment” exists.
