Studying Jewish Identity

By Leonard Fein

American Jewish Congress, 1966

An essay on the various understandings of Jewish identity and recommendations on how the issues raised might be studied and understood. As definitions of Jewishness evolve, and assimilation, intermarriage and faith all test the American Jew, Leonard Fein tries to answer what being Jewish means to those who call themselves Jews in terms of intellect, belief, emotion and behavior.
