Why Jewishness?

By Howard I. Bogot

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), September 1979

Addressing the timeless question of why Judaism is important, the author (a Reform rabbi) suggests and explains four answers: (1) that Jewishness promotes self-esteem; (2) that Jewishness teaches us to act like a somebody before trying to be like everybody; (3) that Jewishness elevates life above the rule of machines; and (4) that Jewishness protects us from our animal nature. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.56 no.1, Fall 1979.
