Jewish Survival and the New Priorities

By Bill Novak

Response, Fall 1972

This article is a slightly modified version of a speech given by Bill Novak to the American Jewish Congress. Mr. Novak speaks to the body on American Jewish identity and the flaw of looking at Jewishness for its own sake as a primary motivation. As opposed to presenting a concrete definition of Jewish identity, he identifies pitfalls that the community must avoid, to make sure Judaism stays relevant.
