Confrontation and Liberty

By Chaim Potok

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1991

The Jewish encounter with modernism has resulted in a permanent splintering of the sacred order known as rabbinic Judaism. The result is the divisiveness now pervading Jewish life. It is only in neutral secular institutions, such as the Conference of Jewish Communal Service, that Jews come together. Jewish communal service professionals stand in the core of North American Jewry; their task is to facilitate the possibilities of secular core-to-Jewish cultural core confrontations.
