The Jewish "Community" -- Take Two

By Tsvi Blanchard

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, 2000

The author argues that a North American "Jewish community" doesn't truly exist. Rather, there are a plethora of "sub-communities" that tend to shift in membership, rituals, roles, and organizational structures. Jews should acknowledge this and work to build systems, programs and processes that create and strengthen links between these sub-communities.
