Response: Dreams That Cannot Die

By Hillel Levine

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Spring 2011

The author reflects on Gary Rosenblatt's article, "The Life of a Dream," (found in this issue of the journal), which he describes as a piece of investigative journalism of Jewish communal affairs that is still unmatched. But he states that what was at stake in the success of the Institute for Jewish Life as a response to the set of events in the Fall of 1969 was the preservation of one important feature of Jewish survival: an organizational center. Jews' capacity to survive and flourish for millennia under circumstances that strained the abilities of other larger and more powerful groups depended on some such center.
