Why be Jewish in an Open Liberal World?
Jewish Agency for Israel (JAFI), April 1995
In this article the editors of AVAR ve'ATID address the problems of continued Jewish existence, when a comprehensive ideology of enduring collective purpose and commitment is lacking. Going forward, they submit a draft for a full educational gestalt consisting of four elements: all human beings are created in the Divine image; the purpose of the commandments as refinement of human character; the collective Jewish people as a holy people; and an exemplary Jewish Zionistic state. These elements are discussed further in the other articles within this issue and the next.
