Smashing Idols and other prescriptions for Jewish Continuity

By Leonard Fein

Nathan Cummings Foundation, 1994

In the modern world, as Jewishness becomes an option instead of an assignment, what role does Judaism have in the life of the American Jew? As Jewish continuity becomes an ever-larger fear for the community, Leonard Fein calls for a renewal of the quality of the Jewish community as a nurturing home for its members, and a sturdier base for devotion to Tikkun Olam, the mending of the world. Jewish devotion to social justice is a powerful engine for Jewish continuity.
