Internal Jewish Cohesion: Problems and Prospects

By Steven Bayme

Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture, 1998

There is a growing communal fissure in the Jewish world, which is expressed in the polarization and radicalization of religious denominations. The tension lies between Triumphalist Orthodoxy and the Liberal Movements. There should be an effort made to strengthen Jewish peoplehood: to strengthen modern Orthodoxy, to moderate the inter-denominational polarization and the dialectics, to emphasize the importance of Jewish pluralism and to redefine common Jewish peoplehood. The author portrays the role of the Memorial Foundation in achieving this goal.
