This issue of Contact examines the Jewish ideal of service, incorporating volunteerism as well as other forms of "gemilut chasadim," acts of lovingkindness. Rabbi Yitz Greenberg highlights the personal nature of these acts as a crucial part of what makes them central to Jewish tradition. The CEO of the Timberland Company discusses how his company incorporates service into its operations. Michael H. Steinhardt highlights the ability of service to strengthen Jewish identity. Senator Joseph I. Lieberman writes that as young Jews embrace volunteerism, they ought not to forget the civic responsibility of political engagement. Also included are articles by Ariel Zwang, Steven Cohen, Joel Westheimer, Rabbi Sara Paasche-Orlow, and Maggi G. Gaines.
