Not the Center, Not the Periphery, But an Every-Expanding Circle

By Jaime Walman

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), January 2008

The author asserts that Israel is neither the center nor the periphery of Jewish life. Rather, it is part of an ever-expanding circle of opportunities to engage with Jewish life. A typical Gen X-er, the author feels less institutionally affiliated but Jewishly connected and understands that Israel, unlike Uganda, does have a feeling of home.
