Review for Race, Ethnicity, and Religion in American Jewish Identity: "The Price of Whiteness: Jews, Race, and American Identity"
Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), October 2006
The author reviews "The Price of Whiteness: Jews, Race, and American Identity" by Eric L. Goldstein. Goldstein asserts that American Jews' definition of the Jewish collectivity has undergone significant changes over the past two centuries, reflecting their varying sense of security in American society. Waxman compares Goldstein's view with that of Charles Liebman, asserting that both Goldstein and Liebman fail to appreciate that this issue transcends both American Jewish history and the paradigm of black-white racial categories; rather, Waxman asserts, the tensions of Jewish identity definition have been present throughout Jewish history.
