Can Orthodoxy Share the Public Square?

By Menachem Kellner

Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), Spring 1999

The author analyzes whether or not Orthodoxy must perceive competing streams of Judaism as illegitimate in order to remain Orthodox, and whether or not the public square in Israel can be reconfigured so as to make it possible for competing ideological groupings to work together. He proposes a way in which Orthodox Jews can relate to non-Orthodox Jews and their understandings of Judaism which lets go of language of "legitimate vs. heretical" without at the same time adopting a pluralist position.
