Hope, Values, and the Jewish Future

By Yosef I. Abramowitz

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), June 2004

The author srates that "This gift to humanity of a hopeful, life-affirming peoplehood, even after being battered around for a couple thousand years, is also a gift to individual Jews; as yet unwrapped and unopened by most." He argues that the task of Jewish education is to make accessible this undercurrent of textual and historic power and optimism, to take this national life-affirming spirit and distill it into basic value components from which everyone can drink its tonic.
