The Chosen People?: Two Perspectives

By Deborah Waxman, Nancy Fuchs-Kreimer

Zeek, January 31, 2012

Two Reconstructionist rabbis discuss the concept of Jews as the Chosen People. Rabbi Waxman rejects chosenness entirely, in favor of distinctiveness. Rabbi Fuchs-Kreimer draws on interfaith encounters with Christians and Muslims to suggest that some kind of concept of chosenness can be reconstructed.
