By Norman Linzer

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Spring 2000

When professionals are deeply committed to Jewish values and are also embedded in secular culture, they must live with the contradictions. When the contradictions weigh heavily, the stand to be taken is to reach for the higher standard, the higher level of morality, and the greater commitment to community.
