Some Fractured Thoughts on Our Irritable Culture

By Ilan Stavans

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), February 2002

A response to Paula Hyman's piece in this issue of Sh'ma. Hyman sets out to define what a modern educated Jew should know in this modern multicultural society. Stavans further shares his insights into the process he was a part of: creating The Chosen 100, a canon of modern Jewish literary works, while voicing his concern about the growing chasm between the erudite elite and the masses.
