Money and Class: Dealing with Difference in Jewish Communities

By Martha Ackelsberg

Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association (RRA), Spring 1995

The author suggests that discussing economic differences is essential to the existence of community, contrary to the prevailing view in the United States that class and money are threatening topics to discuss. The author proposes that addressing differences of class within Jewish communities will enable us to work together more openly and honestly toward a deeper sense of integrity and spirituality.
