Sacred Narratives

Written by:

Consistent with the "positive-historical" and humanistic ideology of its founders, Reform Judaism views the history of Israel in naturalist terms. It interprets the biblical notions of Israel's status as a "nation of priests" and her mission as a "light unto the nations" as having emerged from the Jewish people's historical quest for holiness, not divinely ordained.
