Life on the Edge

By Harry Brechner

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2003

The author recounts the rarely-examined advantages that life in a small Jewish community affords, such as depth of engagement and a sense of being integral to the community. The geographical remoteness of his Jewish community of Victoria, B.C., for example, offers a certain freedom, and if used wisely, that freedom is a fertile ground for creativity.
