How to Connect Two Nouns

By Deborah Dash Moore

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), October 2004

In this article, the author argues that American Jews still face the challenge of transcendence and integration within American society because of the conception of the chosen people. Moore pinpoints a climate of fearfulness that appears to dictate the discussion of Jewish separateness. Moore concludes by supporting the idea of Mordecai Kaplan that Jews should abandon the concept of chosenness and should instead promote oneness through pluralism that acknowledges multiple identities woven into individual personalities.
