The Nature of the Jewish Community and Problems of Communal Service - A Review of Philip Klutznick's 'No Easy Answers'
The author reviews Philip Klutznick's book "No Easy Answers," in which Klutznick writes of a contemporary Jewish community in which he sees "no diminution of substantive values but only forms changing during the processes of immigrant adjustment to American life." Klutznick argues that rabbis should be spiritual leaders and not "psychiatrists," that Zionism should not serve as a divisive issue among American Jews, and that day schools should be abandoned for more comprehensive supplementary education. Overall, Klutznick sees strength in the diverse American Jewish communities and advocates the removal of barriers and the embrace of collaboration between heretofore uncooperative movements.
