Starting Up With God

By Aryeh Cohen

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), September 2009

In the first installment of a year-long series on idolatry, the author recounts a few midrashim related to Abraham's literally iconoclastic early life. He recounts his own experience of metaphorically smashing ideological and religious "idols", including, he writes, the belief that Judaism is equivalent to Orthodoxy.
