The title refers to David Hartman's book by the same name, which the author reviews in this article. Hartman attempts to develop a neo-Maimonidean Jewish philosophy that can appeal to the Modern Orthodox in Israel, and serve as a starting point for the development of a Jewish Israel public culture that secular and religious Israeli Jews can build and sustain together.
