The Modern Jew and the Human Condition: The Impact of Tradition and Secularism

By Norman Linzer

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

The author makes the case that through the observance of a traditional Jewish lifestyle people can achieve a sense of relevance in their lives, learn to accept limitations on their impulses and contribute to social and cultural enrichment. The net effect is, therefore, not that the requirements of the tradition are constraining, but rather that they are expansive. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.56 no.3, Spring 1980.
