The Most Overlooked Sin of 5738, Part II

By Leo Pfeffer, B. Heller, Richard H. Schwartz, Ellen Shajnfeld

Eugene Borowitz, September 29, 1978

In advance of Yom Kippur, four Sh'ma readers share brief essays regarding what they take to be the American Jewish community's most overlooked sin. Their answers: neglecting sufficiently to encourage aliyah; insufficient criticism of Israeli policies toward Palestinians; neglecting sufficiently to speak out regarding humanitarian issues worldwide; and obsessive competitiveness. (This is part 2 of a series.)
