Breaking the Glass: Jewish Peoplehood and Beyond

By Alisa Rubin Kurshan

KolDor, The International School for Jewish Peoplehood Studies at Beth Hatefutsoth, United Jewish Communities, 2007

The author, Senior Vice President for Strategic Planning for UJA-Federation of New York, argues that the definition of peoplehood is no longer the central issue. Today, the overriding issue is finding strategic interventions that will help all Jews understand that they are part of Am Yisrael (people of Israel). If Jews can appreciate the connection to history and destiny, fate and fortune, the next chapter in our story will be as meaningful and full of possibilities as the moment a groom steps on the glass under the chuppah (wedding canopy).
