Review of the Year (2003) in the United States: Jewish Communal Affairs

By Lawrence Grossman

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 2003

Taking seriously its role as the world's largest and most powerful Jewish community, organized American Jewry concentrated its energies outward in 2002, focusing on the threats to Israel's security and the alarming rise of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic sentiment elsewhere in the world. Domestically, controversy swirled over the basic demographic facts of American Jewish life and their meaning, while the downturn of the American economy placed serious constraints on Jewish organizations as they sought to carry on their work.
