Being an American and a Jew

By Michael M. Cohen

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, May 13, 1994

In the January 7, 1994 issue of Sh'ma, Ned Harris portrayed his Jewish identity in defensive terms, stating: "I am a Jew only when, and if, someone says I can't be." Michael M. Cohen responds by stating that Judaism can be reconstructed into something that is vital and meaningful and by doing so Jews will longer be isolated from the rest of society.
