Review of the Year (2003) in the United States: National Affairs

By Richard T. Foltin

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 2003

The war against terrorism defined the American agenda in 2002. The failure of Palestinian militants to halt their campaign of terrorism and an increase in global antisemitism resulted in a heightened sense of fear and anger for American Jews. Domestic issues, such as church-state separation, remained relevant. Tax cuts and a faith-based initiative for social services effected Jewish communal agencies. This essay examines each of these issues in further detail, outlining the issues that faced the American Jewish community in 2002.
