A Matter of Choice: Jewish Identity in the Coming Generation

By Alouph Hareven

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), March 1980

The author surveys the landscape of Jewish identity through the lens not of feeling or thought, but of what Jews do and what they do not do. He concludes that Judaism has ceased to become a way of life for most of the Jewish people, and advocates a reinterpretation of Jewish identity to fit the new situations of the Jewish people. Not to do so, he argues, is to allow Jewish identity to lapse. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.56 no.3, Spring 1980.
