Off Center

By Deborah Dash Moore

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), January 2008

In a discussion of normative Jewish life, the author argues that while American Jews can make the peripheries into new sites of creative action, they still need to engage mainstream organizations that claim authority and authenticity. It is not enough to be off-center; we must de-center aspects of American Jewish organizational life to make room for multiple connections, new voices, and alternative possibilities.
