The Posture of the Jew in the World Today and Its Significance to the American Jewish Community

By Philip M. Klutznick

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1963

The author states that the Jewish community of the United States has not yet achieved its ultimate form. In a fluid and free society, change is the one constant factor. He argues that certain forces are at work, externally and internally, that are driving the American-Jewish community towards goals and characteristics not yet clear, but, nevertheless, to changes which can be for the better or the worse. The burning question is: "will we pause long enough to recognize the existence of these forces and attempt to guide our own destiny or will we let these pressures alone formulate our future?''
