Jewish Survival, Antisemitism and Negotiation with the Tradition

By Charles S. Liebman

NYU Press, February 1, 1995

In his earlier book, Deceptive Images, Liebman argued that there will be no Jewish survival if American Jews continue to identify themselves as Jews while letting the ties that bind them to Jewish tradition and/or the Jewish community at-large become attenuated. Now, he argues that an increase in anti-Semitism and a drop in the percentage of Jews in the United States are likely factors that may actually lead American Jews to strengthen their Jewish commitments and reorient their notions about the nature of Judaism.
