What Would Be Lost?
Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), December 2002
Hart uses an experience from his dissertation research as a jumping-off point for a discussion of a tension inherent in Jewish studies: Are the identities of Jew, scholar, and Jewish scholar truly or wholly compatible, or must one give way to the other in specific contexts? He cautions that Jewish scholars cannot be the handmaidens of the organized Jewish community, that securing collective identity and continuity cannot be a goal of Jewish studies, without compromising the traditional principles of modern scholarship.
